    I confirmed that the refresh doesn't interfere on the v2 schedules, just the v3.22 ones. Using the type method isn't any real advantage, as I still have to race to the "apply" button, regardless of...

    As for cutting the Delta vendor loose, I don't have much nuts and bolts expertise (yet), and if there are hardware problems, I really need a pro to come in and fix, upgrade/reconfig, etc. I can deal...
