“I don’t understand what my IT consultant is saying”
Posted by brozovics at September 23rd, 2013
You don’t say?
If we had to take a guess, we probably lost you when we began rattling off a sequence of acronyms as if you live and breathe this stuff every day. “DNS, TCP, IP, WAN” and so on…
We don’t blame you for not asking for an explanation, but please don’t be too frustrated with us. The IT industry just has some of the most horrifically technical, literal and long-winded names you’ve ever seen. We would much rather use the acronym TCP instead of saying “transmission control protocol” – yuck.
For your assistance, we have defined some of the most commonly heard IT acronyms on our FAQ page, and we really did try to keep the non-technical user in mind. If you have another suggestion for the acronym page, please send us a quick comment and we’ll get it up there.
We hope this helps clear up some of the technical ‘mumbo-jumbo’ you may have heard lately.
