    Lots of new 3 letter user names for old members to remember and associate with their old names!

    Looks like everyone is taking a page out of the boss's book! ;)

    The boss said he wishes he was more creative when he chose his username.

    Now he is a trendsetter :D

    The Boss liked my twitter handle, so I decided to import it over. Now, take a chill pill for the headache. ;)

    @Jay2TheRescue, sure why not? That sounds like a code to hidden treasures or some such thing. Lol

    If you mean me, I did say that. :whistle: I picked my username quickly when setting up the forum software the 1st time, so I didn't put any creative thought into it. It just matches my email address on the domain. :confused:

    After working for AT&T where everything is an acronym, I have an aversion to them, except maybe LOL, IMHO, and NP

    You think AT&T's acronyms are bad? I used to be a civilian employee of the USMC. Everything they say in in acronym form.

    When I was in the military, there was a radio selector switch that had 3 positions "OFF-QPSK-16QAM", the radio was sent back for repair with the note that it was not functioning in the OFF position. It was returned saying that the radio was indeed in working order, and that "OFF" is not an acronym, but that it actually means the word "Off" :ROFLMAO:

    It seems as if anything connected to the federal government is an alphabet soup.
