Wow, that was a fast response! That took only, what? 30 minutes from the time I posted and I expected to have to wait until at least tomorrow.:P "A few hundred networks"? That still sounds like pretty durn good results before slowing to a crawl. Thank you. I'm studying the readme now to see what else I need to obtain. I can't wait...
