    Product feed source..
    Could someone please tell me what the most convenient way to get a CJ feed is? FTP, or HTML, or? Csv, or Tab, or pipe? And why? I am relatively new at the feed thing and I need to tell CJ how I want to obtain it.

    Thanks in advance..

    HTML?! They gave that as a choice?? It'd take hours to load some of those feeds into an HTML page if you have dialup, and several minutes over cable--if your browser didn't just CRASH in abject submission...

    I get mine by FTP ("pull," meaning that I FTP to their server and grab it when I'm ready for it). I chose TAB delimited, because it's unlikely that extraneous tabs will appear in the data (confusing the program). Some people prefer Pipe--for the same reason, I believe.

    Mode CJ FTP - http have more overhead.
    Compressed CSV - minimal size for receiving.
