    Common abbreviations?

    I often have no idea what the various abbreviations being tossed around the forum are. What the heck is PPP? Pulled pork something? I get not wanting to write "Pit Barrel Cooker" three times in a post, but the first time I saw "PBC" all my brain could come up with was "Peanut Butter Charcoal", and while that was an amusing thought, I was pretty sure it was wrong.

    How about a sticky post where common abbreviations can be posted as a reference?

            Hang around here enough they'll become second nature to you.

              Hell, my screen name is an abbreviation. Two points to anyone who can figure it out WITHOUT using Google.

              (hint: It might have been "bofca" if handles had been common on usenet back in the 80s.)

                Honestly? My dyslexia wants to make it something about botox or blowflies

                I'm a bit surprised the IT types here didn't get the reference to the BOFH.

                B*****d Operator From TeXas. (Huskee gets an honorable mention, though. )

                  Not lying when I say that I have no idea what the asterisked word is, and I've been working in IT for 15 years.

                  Googled. Apparently I've never encountered an unpleasant operator
