Rip, wow, that about covers it.
Hit this thread before I had morning coffee, lost it somewhere around "Reel seat".
Noticed none of my terms were in the glossary.
Hope I do OK on the test.

My vote is to add the terms from all of the posters to Rip Tide's post, and make it a sticky. This is neat. Good call MP.
