NOTES
READ THIS PAGE FIRST!

First compiled when I became frustrated while reading magazine
articles, help wanted ads and equipment for sale brochures....all
pertaining to computers....where the following Abbreviations and
Acronyms were used and their meanings were either not known to me
or were not immediately available. I have actually seen (or have
been told about) these combinations of letters used at one time or
another in magazines, newspapers, handbooks, etc. They apply to
personal computers, multimedia, communications, programming,
networking, etc......you name it. This glossary can never be
considered complete so look over the entries and let me have your
feedback. If you find errors or if you can suggest additions, they
will be most welcome (See NOTE 1). If you can help, you have my
thanks in advance.

Keep BABEL on your hard drive or floppy disk or print it and
keep it on your desk (See NOTE 2). Either way, you will have an
outstanding reference, immediately available. BABEL is revised
three times a year, in January, May and September so as to keep you
up-to-date. See APPENDIX A for methods that may be used to
download BABEL in either TEXT, HTML or PALM Format.

Letter groups followed with " * " were used before 1965. At
some of these, historical information is noted. For brief
interpretations of "smiley faces" and other informal expressions
used in electronic mail messages, see APPENDIX B. For a partial
list of Country Domain Names, see APPENDIX C.

BABEL is not in the public domain. It is free for personal use.
When you download it, you agree to the following: You will only
retain BABEL in its entirety and not make ANY modifications, to
include: This opening page, copyright information, version notices
