Backronyms and puns

Postby LongRunner » September 6th, 2013, 3:06 am

BHP (measurement): Be Honest, Please (as it can mean either British Horse Power or Brake Horse Power)
CFL (retrofits): Crappy Fluorescent Lamp
New (technology): Never ever works
RoHS: Reliability often Hampered Seriously or (you're gonna love this one) Reduction of Health & Safety (in light of how next year medical electronics will have to comply, and so will automotive electronics after 3 years)
Alldatasheet: Nodatasheet
Photobucket: Photofuckit

Electrolytic capacitors:
Elite: Extremely lousy incredibly terrible electrolytics
Gemcon: Garbage, exploded mess. Capacitor or not?
I.Q: Inferior Quality
Jun Fu: Just unreliable, normally fucked up
Sacon: Super awful capacitors open noisily (especially the FZ series)
Teapo: Terrible electrolytics that always pop open
Authoritarianism is for wimps.

Smart people don't buy "smart" devices without very carefully weighing up the risks and benefits beforehand.

My PC: Core i3 4130 on GA-H87M-D3H with GT640 OC 2GiB and 2 * 8GiB Kingston HyperX 1600MHz, 2 * WD3003FZEX-00Z4SA0, Pioneer BDR-209DBKS, Seasonic G-360, Chenbro PC31031, Windows 7 Pro (though I do want to build a second system with GNU/Linux).

Ford may "suck" in Australia but not here. My 96 F150 is still using the stock clutch at 220,000KM which is impressive considering it used to tow, and I get good mileage in a big sized motor. My 94 Explorer was still using the stock motor and tranny when I sold it with 365,000KM on it. Don't hate :D All you have to do is take care of them.

My grandfather's 89 Falcon had just about everything go wrong with it that could possibly go wrong - including some fairly expensive things to fix like the Gearbox and Diff. That didn't leave me with a good impression of them.
