--Hi Ken,


Either way would work for you..the caveat is that if you create your own feeds
and topology, those machines would fail if trying to connect to the NWS,or 
othergroups
using the "standard" feed type designation and LDM/IDD. So, you can stuff 
everything
into EXP and work with the  existing LDM/IDD, or if extra granularity is desired
within the feeds, create your own knowing that it is unique to your group.


I lived in the PHX area for about 7 years, good to see our software making it 
your way..

Cheers,

Jeff Weber
