Posted 21 August 2008 - 02:02 PM

Complete the abbreviations & win this clock!

It's easy. Simply be the 1st to provide the full wording to the provided 10 technology based abbreviations, & I'll send the winner this promotional clock.
  • GNU
  • DIC
  • HTTPS
  • IBM
  • DSL
  • SCSI
  • PCMCIA
  • IEEE
  • OSI
  • ASCII
Attached Image

Nothing too glamorous, it's plastic & is about the same size as a cell phone.

Best of luck! :^:

Anyhow, NO! Sloth, in all of his awesomeness, missed one!

At least Satan finally gets to see some snow.

Other takers?

By the way, there are so many for DIC:
