Saving data in List Magic tables

Probably worth mentioning that, as pointed out to me by the good folks  
on this list, it's NOT a good idea to put any of your application's  
data files in the Applications folder if you plan on writing to them.   
Unless the Mac user is an administrator, he/she won't have write  
access to the Applications folder. I ended up creating a folder in the  
user's Documents folder to hold my data files (sqlite db, etc).  And  
also a folder in the user's Library/Preferences folder to hold that  
user's preferences information.
