Oops - I didn't think about not stepping on people toes. (I was mostly not wanting to spam the thread.)
Is there an informal rule about getting one answer at a time?

It seems like the general convention has been to ask one question per post. There's no rule against asking more, but it might be better to not ask too many questions at once so that other people also have a fair shot.
