LOL. Yeah.. I couldn't explain anything meaningful to you since an
NDA prohibits me from saying much. The long and the short of it is
they are doing lots of stuff on the client side to avoid trips to the
server/db. I don't say I agree with everything, but I'm a whipping
boy, not the boss. I put my .02 when I can.

As always in such cases, you begin looking for unusual solutions to
unusual problems...

Thanks for the tip Joshua too!
