Was going through some of my blog entries and was thinking about some of my frequent acronyms. Most of them are known, but still worth mentioning here. Many are hedges.

  • IMHO: In My Humble Opinion
  • IMVHAWISHIMVVVHO: In My Very Humble (And When I Say “Humble,” I Mean “Very, Very, Very Humble”) Opinion
  • BTW: By The Way
  • OIC: Oh, I see!
  • AFAIK: As Far As I Know
  • YMMV: Your Mileage May Vary
  • IANA: I am Not A…
  • IANAL: I Am Not A Lawyer
  • IIRC: If I remember correctly
  • SWMBO: She Who Must Be Obeyed
  • RSN: Real Soon Now
  • RERO: Release Early, Release Often
  • IWTBF: Information Wants to Be Free
  • TBC: To Be Continued
  • IANAC: I Am Not a Crook
  • RTFA: Read The Fine Article (haven’t RTFA)
  • ÀMHA: À Mon Humble Avis
  • À+: À plus tard!
  • ÀLP: À la prochaine!
