Acronyms 01

A lot of you are probably feeling the same I way am right at the moment I am writing this file. I just got done applying for a nice board and I simply went blank while filling out the New User Application! I really hope I gain access, but I hate having to remember what is what all the time. Besides, it’s been almost a year since I have had to fill out a REAL challenging application! So, I have forgotten probably 90% of my acronyms! A shame really because if I could only remember what they meant, I’m sure I could remeber what they were! That’s why I made this file! To help us all remember what is what! I’m sure tons of SysOp’s are going to come down on me for telling what the acronyms mean..but remember.. I am NOT telling what they do, are used for, or anything of that nature. Just what they STAND for! So, don’t give me too hard of a time. This may help you define better New User applications for your board to be more selective! I will try to come out with updates as my time allows for this file.

My Disclaimer:

I don’t know why I need one..but here it is..I take no resposiblity for anything in this file, anything it’s used for, or anyone that reads it! I pretty much don’t take responsibility for anything at ALL and I am beginning to doubt that I exist. Oh well, on to the file!
