    BY the way Shadow Master, no offence was meant by by RTFM statement, it was just an acronym that popped up while writing my post. I'm not even sure if you took offence to it, but I just wanted to be sure.

    Good additions Erich, thanks. I've added STFU, OT and threw in AFK too.

    Please explain this to a (self-proclaimed) world's worst computer dummy but, what the hell does LOL mean? and I think the other is RAFALMO or something similar?

    Laugh Out Loud.

    ROFL is Rollong On The Floor Laughing, and LMAO is Laughing My Ass Off. ROFL & LMAO is often combined into the more powerful ROFLMAO.

    There you go Carl, one quick acronym lesson. :)

    Don't feel bad Carl. Although I can translate most acronyms, until recently I thought =D meant equals dumb instead of a smiley.

    When I was a nurse and we were trying to chart after an especially difficult time, we very often would WAG things like vital signs, especially if we taken several over a short period of time and only remembered roughly what they were. We used WAGPOOMA or just a simple WAG instead of SWAGPOOYA (not in the chart, just in conversation).

    I used to joke that I got into nursing because I always really wanted to be a fiction writer and that was my chance. I got out of nursing because I wanted to make more money.

    T.A., the first time I head this phrase used was by an instructor in a military course that I eventually flunked. (I was one of the 65%...)

    Along with needing copious quantities of magick to work, it also refers to something that is "too difficult to explain to someone like you" or so he said. It was one of those "it works, trust me, don't ask how" sort of things!

    I picked up the PFM one in the military too. Another one from my Navy days was MFNP accompanied by a cyclops smiley face. This was for Mutants For Nuclear Power back when I was on the 'prise or, as it was later nicknamed "The Mobile Chernoybl."

    Where I work, we have users who commit "eye-dee-ten-tee" errors with their PCs.

    Written out, it is ID10T errors.
