Geek speak

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have noticed a few postings recently where a lot of TLA and web short form has been used.
A few people, myself included at times, spend way too much time trying to decipher what the heck some people are trying to say.
To help out a bit, here is a neat site (there are many out there I know but this one is not too bad):

If we continue to use these idiotic abbreviations we will end up like those who attempted to build the tower of Babel!

Not to be a PITA but these "idiotic abbreviations" have been around since the beginning (and at the time they where used for good reason). It's only since the internet became mainstream and the non-geek, average person started using it on a regular basis (and wanting to sound like a geek) that there has been any confusion.

If you don't have time to do it right this time, how are you going to have time to do it again?

You think this is bad. Work on just one military project and you'll be acronymed to death.
