Another basic question that I have not been able to find an answer to. Let's say I have a database, and I am comfortable only keeping the last X number of current records - the older ones I can discard. Can I simply delete the oldest record whenever I exceed X and have the database size be constant? Or will there be 'gas' in the database and I will need to do some kind of compress function regularly to prevent it from growing?
