These have no relation to brewing at all, but being in IT I kinda like 'em.
The first is pronounced is an error commonly seen when you work on a support desk. (which I did for a while and barely escaped with my sanity)
It's an "eye dee ten tee error" Now let's look at it written normally....
ID10T error

The second is pronounced as it looks. PEBKAC.
Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair

You know, I googled WWFSMD and that's what came up. Thought it must be wrong. WTF does that mean?

Just do a google for "Flying Spaghetti Monster". There's more to it then I could reliably rattle off from the top of my head.

Good to see there's at least one other devout pastafarian here.

I have been wondering what that one was all about but I sort of got the inference.A common one I see on the AVS Forums is WAF.
WAF = Wife Acceptance Factor

SWMBO goes back a lot further than the greenboard. Rumpole of the Bailey uses the term for his wife. First produced in 1975. Somethings never change!

We say that "I D Ten Tango" as in you need to fill out an ID10T form to get a box of BA-1100 Novembers (spells BALLOONS)!
