For those who aren't as familiar with some of the shortcuts that are used in the internet world, here's some acronyms that you might find useful:
  • LOL = Laughing Out Loud
  • IMHO = In My Humble Opinion
  • THX = Thanks



TIP: DON'T TYPE IN ALL CAPITALS, BECAUSE THIS IS CONSIDERED "SHOUTING" AND NOT POLITE BEHAVIOR.

I'll continue to add to this list as you see fit. Drop me a note and let me know if you have on that is useful, or one that is on this site and you can't figure it out!! stressed

Hey Billy Boy Barker!

This forum is "Read Only". If so, why we can post here?

RCH " a really small amount" Yes I know it does not match and is not exactly the translation either. Just wondered if anyone else used that measurement?

Yes Chipper, I've used that unit of measurement on many occasions. If I'm not mistaken it's a little smaller than JAW (Just A Whisker) wink

"YGAN" (with a "Y" instead of a "U") means the same thing.

RCH is one I know from working on a drilling rig. Yes, it is correct .001"-.012" range...... depending on the RHG. If you can't figure it out just make a WAG. BTW you won't find many of these in YCB. Your Church Bulletin.

Bill,

By your own definition you are shouting at us. As proof see the quote below:


"LOL = Laughing Out Loud
IMHO = In My Humble Opinion
THX = Thanks

TIP: DON'T TYPE IN ALL CAPITALS, BECAUSE THIS IS CONSIDERED "SHOUTING" AND NOT POLITE BEHAVIOR." (First and last quotation marks added.)


We can hear you quite well. Agrin

Charlie computer

btw: (and, no dad-gone a-shouting)
wpa = we poke along or works progress administration
rea = rural electrification agency or railroad express agency
rfd = rural free delivery
ccc = civil conservation corps
vg = victory garden
et = early times (store-bought liquor of choice when in southeastern OH

You'll need ready command of the above in order to effectively communicate with Eastern Ed. wave
