Been running with this new data source for a while. I went back and made some updates -- dropped out churches, cemeteries and hotels, added back in the whole zip code file. I'll see what the revisions do... as it was most of the time all I got was local churches and hotels, sorta interesting but I would rather see other information. Seems pretty accurate so far though... What it isn't is complete.... which goes back to your original idea sonic -- of creating a method to add in data. The grouping that comes with this data gave me an idea --- could include a pick list/ text file? Some kind of configurable input that would allow you to filter the data groupings you want to include (or exclude). I'd write the code, but don't want to lose all the changes that Mitch made to XM/HD... Maybe we can work something out. Hopefully RR will get re-integrated soon.
