    Acronym Machine

    I remember somebody posting something about an online program where you could type in any word up to 11 letters and it would make up a technical acronym for that, and I've tried searching both here and at flashdaddee, and niehter of them turned up any results. Does anybody know where this is?

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    Wouldn't it make you feel special to be studying PENIS in school?
