Hello everyone:
I am Ann and this is my first post! :flowers:
I am retired, drove new & used buses and trucks in Ontario, Quebec and the States and thoroughly enjoyed every mile of it!
I am pleased to be here and hope to make some friends, in forums.
I've had my p.c. for a few months and don't know what so many of the capitol letters, in p.c. talk, mean so I hope I'll be able to understand any much-needed help, in forums!
Newbies are for beginners, eh? lol
I just turned 61 and have so much to learn, here.
I did sign up for c/net free courses, to learn more, but they speak in those capitol letters, so I'm going to sign up for psychic lessons, too. lol
'Nice to meet you and hope to have some good conversations with you!
Thanks, so much.

Hello, Ann.
Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

The abbreviation's you're talking about, are mostly used when in a Chat room, and aren't used much in general conversatin, here.
A couple of the one's you'll see most often here, are:
LOL - laughing out loud
BTW - by the way
IMHO - in my honest opinion
AFAIK - as far as I know

If you see one, and you're not sure what it means, don't be afraid to ask.
Here are a couple of links to some sites, that will explain most of them:
Glossary of Internet Abbreviations
Emoticons (Smileys) and Abbreviations

Please take the time to browse the New User Orientation forum, to help familiarize yourself with how the board works.
If you have any questions about how to use this site, this forum will probably answer them.

Also, don't forget to check out the Tutorials.
There's a lot of very useful information, in there.

Most of BC's members use straightforward English, avoid technical jargon whenever possible, and try to be as helpful as possible. Welcome to this great user community!
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
