As way of apology i thought i’d link to Matt McSpirit’s blog
Why the appology?
I left a comment on his post “SCVMM – the worlds longest acronym?” saying that SCVMM isn’t actually an acronym
RAM, RAID (pun not intentional), ROM and BIOS are all examples of acronyms as they form a new noun
Random Access Memory = RAM
BBC, HDD, IDE and SCVMM are initialisms
It’s one of the obsessive things that gets on my nerves as the computing industry always reffers to them as acronyms
So just wanted to let him know i’m lightly pulling his leg 😉
I’m going to add you to the blogroll as well!
Also i’ll probably get corrected by the might of a hundred english teachers now…..and i probably deserve it!
Look! Sources and everything!
