Actually Increased File Size doesn't surprise me with an Actual Database..
You have an Increase in the overhead required for the storage of the data..
basically for a database, the tables, relationships etc etc etc are all
stored in the database (or should be generally) so the file sizes are
larger.

The best thing thou is if it is in Database format.. it means others can use
the data.. which means that I can do something in say Astro 3 and then pull
it and use it for another program's data or the like.

Ed, can you put a forum up for the Astro3 beta testers? This way we wont
clog up the ML with our findings.
