I'm not sure if it is bad, good, or simply annoying to open another thread so soon after the other, but I figure a different topic requires a different thread, so here goes...

I'm sure anyone familiar with this board knows what I might be asking the moment they read the subject--I feel it is one of those newbie issues I should know about. Looking it up online, I get a lot of inconclusive answers.
