I think LoTW is a nice beta.  They really should release the full  
version now.  LOL!

Grid squares should have always been a column in that DB with  
multiple entries tied to the contact unique ID.  They made it a  
single field.

It's an example of:  Once you screw up designing the DB schema, it's  
screwed up for life.  :-)
