If someone is going to set up an important dbase, one thing to keep in
mind is that backups don't always preserve links made by these custom apps
(someone will correct me if I'm wrong, I'm sure!). I've always avoided
putting important info into these types of programs as I've worried about
backups. Heck even alternate phone #'s and thing you enter into the Names
app of NOS itself don't get backed up (according to NCU docs, anyway).

One of these days I will setup a big dbase on the Newt, and when I do,
NewtDB will be the app I register for that purpose, based on the fiddling
I've done with demos.
