Gene: "Philately will get you everywhere" (Stanley Gibbons). Thanks for your percipient comments! I'll chase you URL soonest. Stan PS: I know PC (q.g.) is only a 2-LA, but it's attracted a wide semantic spectrum.

Re TLA's: My contribution to "ASP" at Wikipedia was excised, although I don't know by whom ... er ... by who, probably (>0) by someone who didn't care about history. All of these are from CS: Attached Support Processor, ATM Switch Processor, Analog Signal Processor, Appletalk Session Protocol, and the lone Microsoftesque survivor, Active Server Pages.

Still appreciating your insights ... and your outsights (the latter defined, q.g., at http://www.jargondatabase.com/Jargon.aspx?id=1563 )! Despite physical problems, your mind is still sharp.
