Some Internet/Computer related abbreviations you need to know and keep handy.

Oct 30 2014 at 12:34pm

Today while i was chatting with an internet enthusiast on Facebook, he came up with a question. The question goes here: 'I just finished my API and its not working as programmed, why?'. I smiled with suprise and i asked 'whats the meaning of APi?' This guy said api is a third party (lol). Could you imagine? Someone who claimed to have written an API does'nt even know the meaning of API.

Well maybe he wanted to scare me with his terms. I am sure this guy has been using that term for so long now.. and he does'nt even know the meaning. I know that many persons will fall victim of this same syndrome therefore, i have decided to come as a saviour by creating this topic so that it will save you when you are on that hot seat(hehehehehe). Below are some internet and computer related abbreviations and their meanings but i will start with 'API'.
