    Thanks Sal. That cleared up a lot of nagging questions I had.

    One is missing: TLA = Three Letter Acronym

    Cheers,

    I think you need to add some standard definitions.

    A newbie will have a real need to know what an adwhore is!
    Comments are opinion unless otherwise noted. Remember, pillage first. Then burn. Half of all people in the world have IQs under 100. You best learn to trust ol' SSanf!

    Did you forget PR or did I overlook it on your list?

    Lectrickitty,

    I don't forgot PR, but feel free to use any of these for PR.

    PR - Public Relations - Like in: That Network needs some good PR - to get out of this one.

    PR - Page Rank - Like in: You have a good PR in the SE - but, you're not making money.

    PR - Payment Report - Like in: That Network screwed up the last PR - again.

    PR - Partial Results - Like in: That Network is only showing some PR - but, most are reversals.

    PR - Parasite Ranch - Like in: That Network is a PR - but, who's leaving it?

    PR - Puerto Rico - Like in: San Juan, PR - San Juan is the capital and largest city of Puerto Rico.

    So you see?

    It all depends on what is in the content of the paragraph.

    Now, give me your PR on this post. But this time PR is your Personal Review.

    oK NISHITH, I've been waiting for days and nobody has come in here to say what DRM & PSC are... It's DRM (down right mean) of you to leave me wondering for so long... so spill the beans already!

    Another question. I keep reading about SSI - Server Side Include, What the heck is it? What does it do? Inquiring minds want to know.

    After I was confused today with this Acronym "IPO", I decided to include that Acronym here.

    Yes, I confess, "IPO" and "IPod" are two different animals, so kill me now!
    iPod = A brand of portable digital media player designed and marketed by Apple Computer.

    Anyways, there are more new members here since the previous post on this thread, so maybe someone else new, may find an Acronym that they don't know yet.

    IPO = Initial public offering.

    Mr Sal. The original list is impressive and a wonderful effort. Good idea to bump it.
    I've pretty much figured out most of them after hanging around ABW for 6 months or so but a few were "aha" moments.
    Thanks for your super effort!
    Peace,
