When I was talking about FIFO, I was referring to the shares purchased in the 5-year period of 1999 to 2004 then sold them all off in late May of 2004.

Going into the future, specific share identification of my Vanguard funds (which I can do with Vanguard but couldn't do at OppenheimerFunds) could be used to cherry pick the shares that have the highest basis but still be considered "long term" or to pick shares with capital losses.
