Subject Re: row qualifier issue

Great.  Thanks for  the feedback James.  Is it weird that the column is the
last one and not the first one?  We are just using 1 column family across
the board anyways.

Additionally, is there an easy way to add this value to an existing table?
 I can just write a quick app to scan and put the value in myself.
