When someone misses a day or two, would you recommend picking up on the new day, or trying to make it up and do two workouts or skip the next rest day? Any suggestions?

Kind of depends. If you miss squatting or DLing/pulling, try to make that up the next day when possible. Otherwise just start on the current day.

This question relates to yesterday's WOD but has relevence to the programming in general for various exercises. How do I know what 85% for my Push Press is if I'm never going for a max on the Push Press in the WOD. If I'm making progress on the Snatch, C&J, and the BS, one could assume that my Push Press is probably improving. When should I go for a heavy single to make the determination and how often?

Got my Oly Lifting Book today. All I can say that this is pretty fucking great. Anyone needing any help/advice in becoming a better o-lifter should pick this up. Its to the Oly lifts that Starting Strength is to the core lifts. Great job Greg and crew. You should be proud as hell of this terrific piece of work!!!

Greg E, I wanted to report back about some advice you gave me. I was having annoying wrist pain 2 weeks after a comp and nothing short of stopping seemed to help.

You recommended ice, massage, PT, ibuprofen, and reduced weight. I did all but the ibuprofen, at first, but it helped only minimally. I had trouble cleaning the bar without pain. It wasn't until I gave in to taking ibuprofen over 2 weeks that all the other stuff really took effect. I scaled back every few days (2 pills, 400 mg): 3x, 2x, 1x (after wods only).

I'm about 85-90% and experiencing normal soreness now. I had not fully appreciated the pain management apect of my recovery.

If you don't have a 1RM for your PP, just work up to a challenging weight for 5x5. We will rarely if ever do a max PP, so you pretty much have to wing it or throw one in on a Saturday.
