I have been posting here for a long time and I still don't know what most of them mean. I'm sorry but I am not going to try and remember them. If I a poster can't take the time to type what they mean, I just back out.

No worries Stargazzer. If you don't want to, it's up to you. But some people do want to know, and that's for whom I posted this message.
