so now jump to the next block by bill at diablo.net.

Nope, you gotta do a scan of all the entries between here and there.

Yup, I agree. 

I ran a top-level proxy for quite a while during the first run at RC5-56. I
put together a single, non-optimized table (the data wasn't normalized).
And my estimate on that data was 21Gig of MSSQL database utilization for
the entire keyspace, unindexed.

I figured that indexed, it would go up from there, but normalization could
reduce it. It was still going to be gigabytes.
