hmm seems to be getting sluggish again..
I think the root cause is the A. vs. D. threads. It didn't really start going to hell in a handbasket until the latest one.
True dat. Way back in the dark ages when I set up and ran small business databases on CP/M, with db's spread over numerous hard disks or a multitude of floppies, the software was always the problem. Except once when it was the hardware (bad motherboard) that corrupted records as they were entered. Discs did fail, but tape backups always kept things going. The longest records here are proportionally tiny compared to what churned through my 2.5 (later 4) Mhz 64K RAM machines.
