Acronyms, Abbreviations and the like...

(1/2) > >>

Some of us use acronyms, abbreviations and the like in our posts more than others. Sometimes as we read others posts we wonder WTHDTM. {What The Heck Does That Mean} It can leave one quite puzzled. At times one comes up with a completely wrong idea, like the time I was trying to figure out MTL {more than likely}. Due to message context I thought it might be some variant of MDF {medium density fiberboard  :-\} So here's place to compile a list of definitions. Some of these may be building related, some are more general internet/email shorthand. I'll get this off to a start with a few that come readily to mind.

MTL {More Than Likely} it could help in the future if any postings use one line per item, listing the term first  in caps, leave a few spaces and then the meaning. Like this;

MTL        more than likely
YMMV     your mileage may vary
OMMV     others mileage may vary

S/L        skylight
S/R        sheet rock
D/W       dry wall

FWIW    for what it's worth
IMO       in my opinion
IMHO     in my humble opinion (FWIW, when IMHO is used instead of IMO, probably not really humble)

Got any for me, Don? hmm  ::)

IIRC   If I Recall Correctly

BTW   By The Way

IHA= I hate acronyms [rofl2]
