With the recent rebranding of Webroot Web Security Service (WWSS) to Webroot SecureAnywhere Web Security Service (WSAWSS), it got me thinking about tech acronyms in general. What's your favorite? Which ones do you think are the worst?
How's BASIC for a good one? This old-school programming language stands for "Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instructions Code." Everybody can remember BASIC, but try remembering what it stands for. Good acronym!
On the other side, I'll nominate SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) as being a less than pleasant sounding one. Skuzzy - that says it all. There are more where that came from. What are some of your favorites and least favorites?

My favourite as a support technician is PEBCAK - not really tech related but explains so many problems.
I always liked SCSI and MOBO.
UPS, PUP, PSU, FRU, BSOD (of course), USB, DMZ, HAL...maybe not?
