    Ok, I have finally had and have to come out of the closet. Most of the abbreviations that are being thrown about mean just shy of nothing to me.

    For example I just learned today that IIRC means "if i remeber correctly" never would have figured that out...

    BTW "by the way" and IMHO " in my humble opinion" I think I've got down.

    All the rest of you hip young cats want to fill me and the rest of us "slower folk" in on the secret codes and handshakes ??

    I know this will help out Jimscott for sure as he usually is too shy to just speak up about such things. So this one is for you too buddy !

    Let those abbreviations fly.

    Shy? I beg to differ...When he first came on board he was asking questions right and left about every thing.

    All that stuff can easisly mean something else to a different group of people... here are a few ideas of what IIRC means:
    If I Recall/Remember Correctly
    Interactive Illinois Report Card
    If I Really Cared
    Internet Information Research Center
    If I Read Correctly
    If It Really Counts
    Image and Identity Research Collective
    International Internet Recruiting Consultants, Inc.
    Information Integrity Research Centre (UK) International Inter-Society Research Committee (on Nuclear Codes and Standards)
    Isn't It Really Cool
    Impedance Imaging Research Center (Korea)
    Immunity and Infection Research Centre
    International Interpretation Resource Center
    Investor Responsibility Research Center

    Bottom line- You'll never know what they REALLY mean. LOL

    Oh- what do I mean by "LOL"? well, it could be one of the following:

    Laugh Out Loud
    Life of Loan (banking)
    Land of Lincoln
    Land O' Lakes
    Love of Life
    Lands of Lore (game)
    Legend of Legaia (video game)
    Lots Of Love
    Loss of Life (insurance)
    Lots Of Luck
    Little Old Lady
    List of Links
    Loads of Love
    Life of the Land

    Have a good day And good luck!!

    Thanks Capslock

    BTW- those I listed above came from a site.... http://www.acronymfinder.com I was just giving a point... People have started abbriviating everything so it could mean anything. Sorry you all found my reply not helpful.
