Thank you!

So, let's see... the Icon2 and Icon10 are for... I guess... Well... By the way, that was real easy, thank you for helping

Now, i have to guess what's the difference between an Hot Folder and a (cold?) Folder... expecially a difference between a Dot one and an unDot one :o)

I think most of that is right, someone may correct my definitions.

What's the problem with you? :banghead:
Man i know how an arrow and a smile are supposed to be, but can YOU tell what the hell an arrow and a smile mean in a threads listing?
No :annoyed: ... so shut up and let serious people like DivideByZero talk, man ;)

Thank you Divide :beer:

Someone's awfully sensitive.

The arrows and grins are just silly things you can add to your post. For example, I added a question mark to symbolize my confusion at your outbursts.
