I hate to admit how stupid I am and I know I will kick myself when I get the answer, but could someone please tell me what FIFO means?

First in, first out.

No worries, it took me a while to figure it out too.

You aren't stupid, Susan, and there are no stupid questions here -- only stupid reasons not to ask.

We really need a more easily accessable "PBS Dictionary of Terms", I think :-)

Is there an actual  list of terms and abbreviations that explains some of these things to newbies?  Cause I have to admit seeing long-timers post with nearly all abbreviations and not knowing what the heck they are talking about was driving me nutty. LOL.

I don't know what half the abbreviations mean either.  I would suck at text messaging.

On my profile, I've compiled a bunch of PBS tips and hints, and there's a list of abbreviations there too that may help you. (just click my name to see the profile)

Also, if you lose the link Suzanne posted above, you can type "glossary" into the Help Center's "search help docs" window, and you'll find all those terms. :-)
