If you often need this data sorted, depending on where the data comes 
from, you might consider using an SQL table to store it.  The table can 
have indexes sorted on the fields you'd want to see the data sorted in, 
which spreads the sorting work over the time during which data is entered 
into the db...making the select that generates sorted data much faster 
than using sort on hundreds of MB of unsorted data.
