I agree with Sam's idea of archiving. I for instance keep track of all
records from the 01/01/97 in case... I will transfer the entire database
as it is very soon on another device and start with no call records for the
next six months. It's a bit problematic for usage billing. I decided to
stop using emerald for billing even though I miss it but I can live with
it. Frankly said , I prefer to see Emerald with strong capabilities of
authentication and users managment and a weak invoice module rather than
seeing Dale trying to please everyone here and there and not concentrate on
the core product as we experienced last November.

my 2 cents
