Audiogon Abbr. Dictionary


May not go anywhere but how 'bout a compilation of all the weird abbreviations--more common lingo as opposed to standard technical; i.e. IMO-in my opinion v. IMD intermodulation distortion.

IMO-in my opinion
IMHO-in my humble opinion
OTOH-on the other hand
FYI-for your information
BTW-by the way
FWIW-for what its worth
DIY-do it yourself
POS-piece of s$%^
ezmeralda11
ROFLMAO- Rolling On Floor Laughing My A#@ Off

IMNSHO- In my not so humble opinion.
What does YMMV mean?
YMMV - Your mileage may vary
I was athinking YMMV meant, "Your mileage may vary."
yghtmtoyh
BITTG - Break it to them gently
A couple of odd, but widely accepted ones are:

IC = interconnect (instead of integrated circuit)
PC = power cord (instead of personal computer)

Both are fine with me as they work in context.
TOTA: Tired of translating acronyms (insert clever little smiley face here composed of a semi-colon followed immediately by a hyphen and finally an end-parenthesis indicating the previous statement was intended as humorous content).

STFU--

Suitable for this, and any subsequent threads dealing with internet acronyms. It's funny. We know. You're not clever bringing it up AGAIN.
Sherod:

LOL (laughing out loud). Maybe we can add GGL (goodbye good luck)? Used to be my favorite Roy Rogers line until 60's drug dealers wore it out. Would like to see it make a come back as it's a positive comment, more so than (see you on the other side:-).
