to confirm he's OK as a result of another recent thread asking the same thing.

I am completely befuddled by "boo" "lol" "bump"etc. Have we a secret society running here, or is my computer jargon sadly amiss??

LOL=laugh out loud

Bump, or any other word you can think of, sends the post to the top again, before it goes onto page two and gets forgotten...

is used to "bump" a thread back to the top of the list of postings. Any entry will, of course, do this, but it seems to be a sensible word for the task... "refresh" is also often used.

lol is an abrieviation for "laugh out loud", i.e "I'm only joking"

IMHO = "In my humble opinion"

TAIKRS .... well I just made that one up...

"That's all I Know...

You won't find "boo!" there - that means "Boo!".

"Bump" (or "refresh" or indeed anything) is just a way of bumping a post to the top of the board as explained click here
