whatever) for even trivial databases.
I have three
- keep databases below 1.44MB even with

databases with and without audio files(i.e., non-VIBS use 1.44MB floppies
and VIBS use 120MB Super Disks)

analyse whether the complexity is worth it, given that only accounts affected by
this are large, use VIBS, are absentee (ie all precincts on the
