[Loadstone] ID.

Hello Monty

I used to save a point twice. Once with the building name and the other with
the street address. To avoid problems I decrease or increase the ID +-1. Is
that a correct way?

Regards
Gian

Kit,

The ID field has to be a unique number so we use the current Unix time stamp
(like Rob says the amount of time elapsed from jan 1st 1970).  As long as
you don't create more than one point per second you'll have a unique number.
