I'll be AFK for the next week - may be able to get online from an internet café but can't promise.
Y'all be good whilst my back's turned, d'ye hear me?

Actually I had not opened this email yet, but as long
as he is not out fondling kindergartners it matters
little to me. I don't text, and don't speak text, usually
ignoring all those acronyms or whatever they are.

Have we discussed it before? Is that what you mean by
"remember now"?

many of these internet initialisms predate texting - I started seeing them when I first began frequenting USENET forums, which predated internet forums such as this one (this would have been during the 90s).

"Usenet is like a herd of performing elephants with diarrhea. Massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of mind-boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it."

Like you say, a precursor to UBB.
I'd used terms such as WYSIWYG and GUI and HUI as well

But surely you will remember now, Luke that AFK = Away From Keyboard!

You have come across it before.....when wofahulicodoc said it recently.

And its not to far to figure out that RTK means the Rhuby has returned (to keyboard) smile

As I teased Luke with ROFL...., knowing he doesn't speak text, I probably deserve to have

Oh, well, no loss. I am not a social networker either, rather
read a good book. But thanks, Olly.

Tell me, Aramis; is that 6 x V or 3 x W - or a graph of Western economy over the last 50 years?
