Subscribers who love baffling their computillterate friends with impenetrable jargon may find our acronymophobia a little irritating – a recent one-page release from European Silicon Structures included ES2, AI, VLSI, AIAI, VP, KRSTL – but we won’t take issue with anyone who suggests that the problem is simply that we’ve lived too long: back in our salad days, AI was something that farmers did to their livestock when they couldn’t afford to keep their own champion sire – Straight up? No bull? as the nervous cow waiting her turn said to the one who’d just been done after she has reassuringly explained the procedure and as for the abbreviation that’s creeping in for Presentation Manager, it’s sounds far too reminiscent of the time on the lunar calendar when wise men are especially understanding towards the ladies in their lives.
