My idea encompasses both types of acronyms. The typical perlmonks acronyms mentioned above, and the things that you are likely to see in messages.

TIMTOWTDI There is More Than One Way To Do It

etc...
Perhaps the page should be devided into two sections or something to explain that they are different...

Re(3): Acronyms. (Perlmonks-specific Acronyms).. (minor quibble, acronymfinder)

    One wee-tiny quibble, brother krujos.   AFAIK, TMTOWDI sans the first "I" is the original form of the "There's More Than One Way To Do It" acronym.  

    FWIW, http://www.acronymfinder.com/ is my favorite place to find what an acronym stands for.   There's even an AcronymFinder form on my homenode, in the Search Jones section.   Of course it doesn't (yet?) contain PM-specific acronyms.

[1nickt]: ugh, I stuck my head in the bass bin for 30 seconds on a dare at Ted Nugent at Hammersmith Odeon. Yes, I am 40% deaf now.
[johngg]: My daughter is incredibly jealous of my wife who got to see The Clash at Brixton many years ago. They went to see The Vaccines there recently.
[1nickt]: But the bands are even louder! I saw Spearhead (Michael Franti) at an outdoor show and had to walk a mile away to not feel pain in my chest! Babies were crying ... I asked the sound engineer why it was necessary to have the bass so loud and he laughed...
[Discipulus]: but the best i attended live was Mano Negra Patchanka at Forte Prenestino .. in 1990
[Corion]: Hmmm - Mano Negra or at least Manu Chao seem to put on a good live show. At least the one live CD I have from Manu Chao sounds good ;)
Discipulus feels the same jealousity of the johngg's daughter
[1nickt]: choroba I agree
[choroba]: Playing in a punk rock band for 20 years... my hearing is quite bad
[Corion]: I still have hopes to turn my godson and his two siblings into a punk band ;)
