Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i guess my question is regarding to shortcuts. dw:1346824704254:dw 6 and a half. what we actually mean without the shortcuts is dw:1346824730663:dw But if we have dw:1346824746385:dw Do we mean 6 and a half as the shortcut? But dw:1346824783677:dw
