Ok. I'm kinda new to the whole discussion forum website thing and I keep reading posts with all kinds of letter combos that I'm not catching onto. I mean, I get the DS,DD, dh, fil,mil, they're pretty obvious, but what do things like piog, tfs, and others mean? Help out a slow tech learning lady and reply with some of the anagrams you use and what they mean.... thanx much :-)
