I never learned that as an acronym -- I learned the mnemonic phrase, of course :-) When I was teaching undergrads, I once drew a circuit with a capacitor I labeled "FBC". I told them if they didn't know what it stood for, to "ask around". Got a good chuckle from the audience.

My own family calls me "friki" more times I'd like to admit!! Fortunately, we have now our own day! When I was at the Uni, my flat-mates and me build a wifi map with the different keys of the neighboring networks that were available in each room of the apartment. P.S.

Max, have you ever heard of a RED PENCIL? It's a Reliable Electronic Device for Printing Every Name Composed of Initial Letters (ie an acronym generator). Yet to be invented.....

Argh. It is "...on". Thanks for the catch. And you're right again - it was a gradual ascent to enlightenment.

Don't do yourself down Duane. YOU'RE in the light. The rest of the world is in darkness.... I also didn't like the LOTR movies, for much the same reasons. Why mess with a good story? And isn't it the SillmarilliOn? (Well who started being picky... :-)
