Hi Jordan,

No worries.

OK, we should be able to figure this out.

Very good.

No, not really.  We will need the fully-qualified hostname and IP
address of the machine you want to run the LDM on when you are ready
to start testing.  After that, we will need to understand more fully
what data you need so we can help figure out what IDD feeds you
should get.
