Subject Re: Storage limitations?

Ok I was assuming the db could be really big. I'm storing images so it
_will_ get pretty large.

For the field size question: I had an idea to greatly simplify
sorting/displaying a comments thread with replies by appending the replies
within their respective original comment field. Since the order I want to
display the comments is the natural chronological order, a simple append
process seems to make sense. Haven't tried yet but seems logical.
