    Some people like myself which are getting old can not remember those codes, it is better for me to just spell out the words to keep from getting confused.

    Thanks.:D

    PIS PAV and PGP are rarely used.
    Good thread, but mostly in my post I at least try to include in one place what my shorthand means.
