    It hasn’t been that long since TMI meant Three Mile Island.

    So tell the NSA to … hmmm … can I actually post profane initials?

    I LOVE it.
    What does the PL stand for in the second frame?

    ^I am guessing it means Platoon Leader in this context. I seriously doubt he means public library.

    It’s “P I .”, not PL. (Private Investigator)

    @Bruno Zeigerts

    Sure and if I find out what you said, you’ll still get a harsh reprimand.

    @A Common ’tater
    I get you on that. Acronyms have always irritated me. Never could pass a school test on those lists. The aircraft manufacturing company I worked for at one time started talking about one of their new software products they were going to market with called ATM. I wondered what airplanes had to do with banking. All the article talked about was ATM. I finally found the one place in the article where it was called Air Traffic Management. Sheesh!

    Like the address 110 St. James St. Is that Street James Street, or Saint James Saint? It can’t be Saint James Street since you would be using the same short form for different words. How stupid would that be?

    Ah computer lingo or secret code. Just like learning a second language.

    ATM? Surely you mean Asynchronous Transmission Mode. See, it all comes down to what it means to you.

    I know we decided it’s “PI”, but on the “PL” subject; that always meant Private Line, a Motorola two-way radio term.

    It just dawned on me, you’re confusing acronyms with abbreviations. An acronym is an abbreviation that becomes a word, such as NASA or POP or UNICEF. Some word can be truncated and merged to form acronyms. LOL, TMI, NSA aren’t acronyms, merely abbreviations. How do you pronounce FYI?
    So, is this TMI?

    Sounds as if you’re taking an inventory of vacuum tubes

    Private Investigator it is. AcronymFinder.com had 124 listings for PL and none of them made sense in this context.
