<<Who is YMMV?...>>

<<I'll probably end up looking very stupid when I finally get the real answer, but right now I'm beginning to fear the chain of responses that may come first. And JackPoint is sitting back laughing all the way ;)>>

Jack Point is usually amused. "When I have nothing else to laugh at, I laugh at myself 'till I ache for it." But it's about time someone gave you a straight answer:

"YMMV" means "Your Mileage May Vary"-- i.e. (roughly) "my advice/information may not be quite right for your situation, so double-check before selling the farm."
