Although I have an Internet presence, do my writing on a computer and would not know how to function without one now, I am not really fond of the computer and tend to use it as a tool only. Often my web master will write me emails and put an acronym at the end of the email such as LOL. I try to guess what that might mean… lots of luck? And I am most often wrong! That actually means laughing out loud! I have now joined the crowd and am finally learning a few keystrokes for symbols and emoticons. You can continue to write all the words out if you would like, or you too can use some of the following acronyms.
