I need a rundown on the acronyms used here, like FIFO, RWAP, etc.  I can't figure them out sometimes.

Thanks a bunch.

FIFO=First In First Out

RWAP=Received With A Problem

DS, DD, DH, DW=Dear Son, Dear Daughter, Dear Husband/Wife.  Took me while to figure this one out.

Wow - that solves all my problems.  I kept trying to figure out several of them out, and finally gave up.

Someone ought to repost it like a FAQ about every three months for the newbies.

Thank you so much.
