You put the smile back on my face! We've lost 3/4 of our team due to
the stats. And THAT was very annoying. I know that Duncan, Jeff and the
rest of the core team does a great job. Not many can organize an effort
like this. But I still think the stats could be fixed much sooner. 

How large are the current databases? How much RAM do you need to keep
everything in memory?
