Dear Colleagues,



Can anyone of you help me understand the meaning of \"House Fuel\" in English?



And is it in contrast to \"Certification Fuel\"?

Wrong place for terminology questions Dec 3, 2002

Dear Abel,



In order to get a very swift reply to your question, you should ask it in the KudoZ section.



Best regards,

Yes, I know I should put it there.

But I got no reply so far. So I think I must refer to local Europeans or Americans for the anwser. This forum can help.



Thanks anyway.

About right places Dec 3, 2002

It\'s true that it\'s not the right place for terminology questions, but I don\'t see any problem on it because it can be useful when prozmail is not working well or when you want more people to see the question (because in forums it stays there). The question then can be: which forum?

May be Coop? Well, with the Off Topic Forum you\'re sure not to be Off Topic!
