As I sit here by my PC (Personal Computer), listening to music on my DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) radio - in your area, FM (Frequency Modulation) radio may still be dominant - I receive an SMS (Short Message Signaling) on my GSM (Global System for Mobile communication) phone saying that I ought to see the TV (TeleVision) broadcast tonight from BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) about people's inability to handle commonly recognized TLAs (Three Letter Abbreviations). Since the days of LP (Long Play) discs, through CDs (Compact Discs) and DVDs (Digital Versatile Discs), TLAs and ETLAs (Extended Three Letter Abbreviations) have made little sense. Streaming technology managed by HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol) or HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) over the IP (Internet Protocol), with content managed by HTML (HyperText Markup Language) providet by your ISP (Internet Service Provider) may gradually replace physical media.

Here, at CP (Code Project), I suppose that anyone from USA (United States of America) and GB (Great Britain), and even those from EU (European Union) are familiar with many of these ETLAs. Yet, as a service to those who do not immediately recognize e.g. BMW (Bayerische Motoren Werke AG) or LG (Lucky Goldstar) I suggest that we make it a habit to explain such terms when referring to such terms. Remember that it may be essential even when referring to e.g. a bottle of Dr. (Doctor) Pepper, or when updating your CV (Curriculum Vitae).
