    I seem to be OT as well. Hopefully that doesn't mean "off topic."

    Another random guess would be that it stands for "Open Threads" and it is a list of all the initiators of presently open threads? Clueless.

    It stands for "On time" but we didn't put the "and over budget" part in because we were over budge and needed to get it out on time.

    Omnibus Thema. I just know. Don't ask.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    No, its Ot, the mongolian goddess. We have a closet sect of mongolians here, they heard we might know how to break through a fire wall...
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.
