newbie question about branch and sticky'ness?

I'm a cvs newbie. I know I should rather learn cvs from the commandline but since tortoisecvs is so easy, I created a branch from it (since I had a program I wanted to change something from)...

Somewhere I read that when I work on either the branch or the "HEAD" this would make a "sticky" flag - I've seen this "sticky" flag several places... But never understood what it meant. What does it mean?

Now, I don't need this branch anymore... I think that I actually never committed anything to the branch... Do I have to "close" the branch or parse it into the trunk - I suppose that is the one called "HEAD"?

As you can hear, I'm a newbie and even though I tried to read something about it on the internet, I'm still confused... TIA.

Best regards / Med venlig hilsen
