Shoulda guessed :)

Sorry Wasabi, I forgot where youse at. :)

We had a big thunderstorm sneak up on us from the South so I had to shutdown quickly to avoid damage from the lightning. We're sheltered on the South & generally don't get storms from that direction, so when we first heard the thunder, the storm was virtually right on top of us.

Apologies if anyone thought I'd snubbed them.

By the time this is posted should be about midnight east coast time....

Hi Brooksy,
No apologies needed. When I'm up and ready to go, most of you are ready for bed. Hope that storm is gone......wasabi

IWSOT, (I'm with Sushi on this). Don't forget there are a lot of viewers that are not members here. Do we want to scare them off by confusing them before they join us.

Imagine all these first time visitors to DiscussCooking asking what the heck does ISO mean etc., particularly when ISO is a widely used term these days in reference to burning CDs.

The whole world is going mad with shorthand text message type jargon. Is there not anything that is real, left to enjoy, like a couple of keystrokes?

G'day Wayne.

Yes Wasabi, it raced over South to NW. We normally get'em from the NW.

Short codes were good when using a CW key Q codes & things like
TNX - Thanks
PLS - Please
& after a while they just ran. But that is a specialist area, tand this forum isn't. The common ones are ok I suppose, getting used to them, but acro's with multiple connotations are a nightmare.

Anyway, guess who's cooking dinner tonite, so its off to the kitchen

CU later .

I go nuts sometimes trying to figure these things out. I am sticking to the old way. No acronyms (or hardly any)

And here I thought ISO meant "in search of". =P

I vote for doing whatever floats your boat! If you like 'em, use 'em. If you don't like 'em, then don't.

If you don't know what an acronym means, ask. :D People here are super great about explaining things.

Don't sweat the little details. And if you're not sure about it being a "little detail", ask yourself if it's going to matter to you five years from now. Chances are pretty darn good that it won't! It's always a good feeling to cross one more thing off your list of things to worry about.

Well said Zereh!

Do what makes you happy and don't do something that will make you upset

I'll use the ISO and the REC now. I just learned recently how to use the smileys.
