    What about CU4CU? I've seen that and it seems pretty self-explanatory, but I don't understand what "commercial use for commercial use" would mean.

    Is there a list somewhere on this board, that tells us how many posts equals for instance Prep-Cook, etc.......On this forum? I think it would be interesting to look @ & to make goals, to reach.
