Hey, a website that I missed!  What a terrific resource, Don; exactly what I 
need right now!  Frankly, I was ready to go into overkill mode.  I am now 
thinking I can live with and not worry about a prepackaged system from M3.

>Some regulators are better than others in not dumping.

The picture is still kinda fuzzy for me here.  It's my understanding that 2 
stage regulators are designed precisely to prevent dumping.  Will a 
one-stage regulator plus needle valve prevent dumping too? (I think Dave 
Gomberg would say no, but I'm not sure why.  Please, please, understand I'm 
not trying to start a flame war.  I'm just trying to understand the 
technology here).

Man, you don't owe me or anyone else an explanation.  I cannot express how 
helpful the site is in its present state.

Missed that one.  Thanks!

Hey, its the American way!
