Hey guys,<br><br>While I understand the usefullness and economy of acronyms in general, and can appreciate (from long experience) my relative level of unsophistication, the acronyms are beginning to drive me insane. The ones I have figured out have sometimes taken me days, the ones I haven't figured out are keeping me awake at night.<br><br>Could one of you kind souls please make a list the more commonly used ones and their meanings and post it for me? The ones that are really bothering me right now are "ymmv" and "IIRC".<br><br>Thank you,<br><br>Andy

Mea Culpa. "Your Milage May Vary" and "If I Recall Correctly". In 1983 I paid by the minute to do email... and it was 300 baud.<br><br>Tom
