Roger, first, then Dave:

On your first question, the REST library is effectively stateless, so with
each request, your app is essentially logging in again.  It will send
information to DB with each call that includes authentication info., so
there really is no timing out.  The initializing that you are doing at the
beginning is to the library, not to DB.  The initialization routine just
puts your tokens and keys into the appropriate containers that are
maintained by the library as long as your app is running.

On being stuck, Dave and I would both be happy to help, so hit us off-list
with your code and such.

Yes, in theory, anyway, only folks who have your app and user keys can get
to the files, assuming that DB isn't hacked.  The reason for implementing
encryption within that area is so that you can have only certain users
access certain files, and other users access other files, within this one
DB account.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
