    @Jody: From a ColdFusion perspective, that's a reasonable approach to storing both values and users, but it's probably more useful for smaller datasets. With larger datasets, you may run into problems storing the lists, depending on the database you're using. From a database perspective, if you wan... read more »

    If it's any consolation, the EDGE version isn't necessarily any better. Incoming calls sometimes don't ring, text messages duplicate on their way out, voicemail notification shows up minutes or hours later, calls drop for no reason, Safari crashes regularly ... today's problem is that no custom apps... read more »
