I'm thinking the same thing, it's the only explanation. I stopped using SOWPODS and things got 
a bit faster after I substituted a file half that size.

I'm sure you and Bob are right about using a database, but I'm not a database person and I 
wouldn't know where to start. If anyone wants to help, you can have a free copy of my 
already-free game...

Probably we shouldn't cluter the list with that, but there's email.
