Lunedi Lunacy

I've never considered myself backward when it comes to using new technology, in fact I spent a good deal of my working life helping design and assisting people in learning new programmes and systems. However for some reason I have a problem with SMS - I just haven't got the hang of it. It may well have something to do with using the various abbreviations or trying to type with one finger. Fortunately I was able to find this excerpt from CBC's Computer Corner to give me some hints on acronyms.



UPDATE:


My friend DF tells me that apparently the embeded video is block in Canada - guess because the CBC is protecting its programmming. But here is the link which should take you to it.

Sad to say, but I am probably about that clueless when it comes to SMS speak.

That was just hilarious! I'll have to try out Gunter's helpful hints.

Abbreviations? Don't be lazy. I type complete words AND use (proper) interpunction. Give me your mobile number and I'll prove it.

And see you next time!

HA! All too close to reality for me. I still don't know what many of the text-message shortcuts mean. Recently someone wrote IMHAO and I have no idea what it means. I'm guessing the A=ass and the O=off, but other than that...... "I Might Hiccup My Ass Off"?

thank goodness there are people here like me! i thought i'm the only one who's soooo behind this SMS/texting thing....

honestly don't like it and i prefer just picking up the phone...much easier than pressing those tiny bloody keys on the mobile!
