WispaRed7 calling @MI5 & Co

would it be better if I looked up the abbreviations in Wikipedia, to save members time ?

I've never used Wikipedia before

is it something I download/install ? I do hope not, I'm not very good at that kind of thing Smiley Happy

Re: IT abbreviations .....

Jane if you wanted to use Wikipedia as you suggested ....just type this into the search bar of your laptop

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page .....(if you bookmark that link you can access it easily).

Or alternatively.... you could go into Google and type in the abbreviation you are looking for?

I personally use Google a lot...Smiley Wink
