We recently moved into a house with an oven that has a couple of symbols on the dial that I can't identify. The oven is a Baumatic BA700SS, but it's old enough that all the links to manuals online seem to be broken. Can anyone tell me what the functions at the bottom of the dial and directly left of that one are? Also the first symbol anticlockwise from the top seems to have rubbed off. Any guesses what that would have been?

At my gmail sign-on using Firefox, I could type the first initial in my email name and it would drop down where I could click on my email name and automatically insert it (then password). It stopped doing that and I have been messing with Firefox autofill and that seems mainly for filling out forms. Yes, I am sure this is an easy thing for someone (me) to fix but for some reason it is stumping me. My wife and I liked the utter simplicity on our home computer of this function. Can you help?

I listened in on an engineering design lecture a few days ago, and was fascinated to find out that there are apparently databases out there that contain all the different ways some common functions can be accomplished - for example, getting liquid out of a cup. What are these databases called and where can I find them?
