Dead Short: For electrical issues. This depends on the content of the statement it is being used in.

Hey Night...

Then based on your definition of DS (damned or darling son) and referenced against the above thorough list as supplied by Fisherman (dump station...), I guess I'd better stop referring to my son as a dump station...but then again...? At least, before he finds out, right?? All in good fun! Thanks Fisherman...good list! Don't memorize this stuff but merely print it out or you'll go insane! cheers-
