    Lightbulb Favorite Quickies and Acronyms

    Ok, there are a ton of these, and they've been shared between geeks since before it was called 'the Internet' in Vice-President Gore's feeble imagination. But I'd like to get a comprehensive list of them, so let's start here!

    PEBKAC: (Problem Exists Between Keyboard and Chair)

    I D 10 T: (This is a spoken joke. You say "eye dee ten tee", but when you write it out "ID10T" it obviously becomes 'idiot'.)

    STFW: Search The F$cking Web

    RTFM: Read The F$cking Manual (Man page, for us UNIX purists)

    Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made president should on no account be allowed to do the job. --Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

    SNAFU- Situation normal, all ****ed up

    ex. Uh oh, we have a little bit of a Snafu here at the helpdesk.

    WAF- What a fag
    YAF- You're a fag

    This circulates quite frequently in e-mails amongst friends and collegues (a couple of them truley fit the description, so dont get all worked up )

    SUBNET errors

    Stupid users breaking networking, erasing things

    Came up with this one in response to this lady who kept on erasing AOL from her computer, then wondered why she couldnt "click that little connect thing like I do at the office". It happened a good 3 times before it sunk in. This was back in HS though.
