in reply to Odd/Funny/Wacky/Gore Acronyms

My wife used to work at Intel, where they had BUMs (Business Update Meetings, I think) They had a ton of TLAs (Three-Letter Acronyms), but for some reason I can't remember any of the others.

    How about the ETLA -- Extended Three Letter Acronym? :)


      Or if that acronym space isn't big enough, you can upgrade to DETLAs: Double-Extended Three Letter Acronyms.

      One who is annoyed with hackerdom's propensity towards acronyms might think of the DETLA as a SAPFU: an idea that Surpasses All Previous Fuckups.

      The hell with paco, vote for Erudil!
