IDK

That IDK doesn't have the bars under it... neither does ROFLMAO...

so neither is in the dictionary...

IDK = I don't know

DIIK = darn if I know...

 

so when you make a post and an acronym isn't underlined.. time to put it in this thread...

So where is this "dictionary"? Do you just type in an abbreviation and if it is underlined, it is in there?

 

SSDD?

One of the things I hated most when moving my professional focus from electronics to computers was having to learn a new, extensive (and sometimes silly) list of acronyms. Sometimes I think woodworkers take this even farther. Example-

 

"Tried the BS to make DT but needed the ROS to trim the WP material. Needed to cleanup the WB of spilled BLO"

 

Why do we need to write in "code" and we're not sending text messages or Tweets!

 

Here's how ridiculous it has become (and this is just one list)- http://www.hobbithouseinc.com/personal/woodpics/_acronyms.htm
