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

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
