Ooops... Didn't mean to be really confused/confusing. I meant to ask whether one of those is a GUID. I always hear you guys saying it and thought it had something to do with "geography" on the network. Thanks Jay. ;)

What data fields are you already collecting in your KAD data? Do you see something called either a Kad ID or a Kad User Hash? Kad IDs looks like this F8EF14D2FB34C697E316F18B059E9A93; while User Hashes (I think) look like this 00242123D20E5D4ACCDDEA0E8E9B6FA7.

What's the difference between a Kad ID and this thing that I'm calling a "User Hash"? Is one of these just a calculation on the IP address? Is the other some sort of unique Geo ID?
