We like our Acronyms in the IT world as well, though we dont have any dirty ones... yet... :ct

Here are a few we modified to reflect the true meaning..

WWW - World Wide Wait
ISDN - It Still Does Nothing
MACINTOSH - Most Applications Crash; If Not, The Operating System Hangs
WINDOWS: Will Install Needless Data On Whole System
APPLE - Arrogance Produces Profit Losing Entity
SCSI - System Can't See It
DOS - Defunct Operating System
BASIC - Bill's Attempt to Seize Industry Control
IBM - I Blame Microsoft

Here are a few we invented for the Helpdesk team...

PICNIC: Problem In Chair, Not In Computer
TSTO: Too Stupid To Operate
EBK: Error Behind Keyboard
EBCAC: Error Between Computer And Chair
PEBKAC: Problem Exists Between Keyboard and Chair.
Layer 8/9 error: (There are seven layers in the OSI model of computer networks. The 8th layer is the user) ;)
Code 18: The problem is located 18 inches away from the monitor.
EEOC: Equipment Exceeds Operator Capabilities
FB-PC: F***tard behind PC
OHE: Operator Headspace Error
C2K: "Chair to Keyboard" problem
CBE: Carbon-Based Error
ESO: Equipment Smarter than Operator
