    Of course you can't find it in any dictionary. It's slang for laptop. I use it for my Lappy 17, 15, etc. The same way I use "tab" for my tablet or 'droid for my Android devices.

    There will always be words we disagree with . . . it's the nature of the beast.

    Some have called those who aren't in the Windows 10 Insider Program "Outsiders". I object to that terminology because, to me, it seems to be insulting to those who have chosen 1. to leave the Insider Program or 2. have never joined the Insider Program. I'd rather call them non-Insiders, which describes without insult.

    So there you have it. Ain't gonna please all the people all the time. At all, never.

    The issue I was referring to was concerning the posting of links to non MS downloads(ISO's and ESD's). It has zero to do with the skills or knowledge of Kari one bit. From now on do not post any link from a non MS source or it will be reported.

    Jeff
    With Kari it is a matter of respect. I did not post that link so please do not attempt to say I did. Also you are not a moderator . When you become one then you can tell me what to post and what not to post but please do not ever tell me I did something when I did not.

    I'm leaning toward Unsiders. (Like 7-up, the Uncola - I think it's kinda cool)

    Of course there is the tradition of the TLA in Computing :- Three Letter Acronyms

    So, those who have chosen 1. to leave the Insider Program are LIP (Left Insider Program), or 2. NIP have Never joined the Insider Program, and to make it a little more friendly, (like Lappy, for instance):

    LIPpys, or NIPpys, as opposed to IIPys (In the Insider Program).

    No Insult There, Is There (NITIT?)?

    Well, Fafhrd, the only problem I have with your acronyms is that I could never remember what each is for. Even with you writing the instructions on the boot heel, I still couldn't figure out TLA for awhile.

    Ummm, wouldn't NIP be NJIP?

    As you can see, acronyms are totally lost on me.

    The clue is Three Letter, so NIP is correct. Whereas NIP and LIP are acronyms, strangely TLA is not, because it cannot be pronounced (except in Klingon) - in itself it is a different TLA - a Three Letter Abbreviation
