    I think FUBAR might be a World War 2 one as well. At least, if 'Saving Private Ryan' is anything to go by. FYI (for your information) my friend calls that film 'Saving Ryan's Privates' which is fun

    The Linux comunity could actually come up with a few of its own. Some suggestions...

    BRU - Become root user
    OYFE - Open your favourite editor
    IWWWW - It won't work with Wine
    FPP - Fragging permission problem.
