    So that's what that shit meant? I always thought the 'b' stood for "beta", and the exclamation mark was just some gibberish ...
    Then again, I don't have that much smart anymore.

    ^^ Thanks man, now I know once and for all.
    Seriously, I don't know why I never looked it up. It's like those codes in movie Torrents like 'TS', 'DVDSCR' or 'Proper', which took awhile before I figured them out, but never looked up for some reason.

    Yeah I know, it must be The Internet. In real life, people just kinda look shocked and run away in a blinding fury whenever I ask a question.

    Sarcasm can be pretty devious on a webforum. I appreciate your helpfulness though.
