As a follow-up, with masquerade's help (thanks, bud!) I deleted the UTW crap from my DB. After running the SQL query, I got this: Deleted rows: 370405 (Query took 60.3753 sec) Yep, 370405 rows! I just tested the load time on the WRITE panel and it's now 3.65 seconds. For the record, I was running UTW version 3.14. Craig.
