I jumped to this last post, and since Andyr just bid farewell to his wisdom teeth, I saw "kinky smut" and thought there'd been mention of Creepy Dentist.  :o
Newt had always suspected that people who regularly used the word "community" were using it in a very specific sense that excluded him and everyone he knew.

DR = divine remix, dmaage reduction, man who does medical things to you

I don't remember having made that post, either.

While I'm at it, though, DR also stands for Dalereckoning (measurement of year number in a similar vein to A.D.).

Jansens aren't as harmless like everybody supposes!
They got them stumpy legs and puffy potato noses!
And what's with all the turnips?
Why do they eat so much root vegetables, anyway?

.bam is the extension used by IE animation files. Bioware named them, but it's probably something like Bioware Animation/Movie or something like that. Not that movies are done with .bams. They're .mve files.

I always wondered what GUI was. I don't know if it's here or not (didn't read all entries).

Figured it out on my own:

I had to laugh. I'm killing time before work, rereading the list of acronyms for fun and pleasure as a break from making feeble but inflamatory posts on other boards, and I came across RTFM.

That should be my mantra.

RTFS is two levels up: the next level is having RTFM and figured out it's wrong.
I've even found places where the FS is wrong, i.e., the compiler didn't do what it was instructed to.  I had a freind who knew all THOSE for UNIX; he patched kernels hot (only with great preparation).
