Keeping transactional data for a multi-user system in flat files is fraught with complications - and PHP does not provide sophisticated queue locking mechanisms. It would have been a bit better to have used separate files for each entry point to script (to reduce contention) but a better solution would be to use a DBMS. Still its OK for qualitative information / low volume sites.
