astute observation

hey, Tab points out that SQL allows these things called 'stored
procedures' that might do me up nicely

'cept, how would I convince it not to apply the filter to the returned

I dislike enormously the way .NET manages this stuff, and I wish the
client wasn't a) an excellent payer and b) a good friend or I'd abandon
this for happier things
