In the office again.
There is often confusion as to the meaning of some of the abbreviations used in posts.

So, here are some of the most common ones:

HTH - Hope this (or that) helps

LOL - Laugh out loud

BTW - By the way

FYI - For your information

AFAIK / AFAIAC - As far as I know / As far as I am concerned.

PMSL - weeing yourself with laughter

FOTC - Falling (fell) off the chair.

ROTFL - Rolling on the floor, laughing.

FFS - For procreation`s sake.

WTF - What the procreation?

SSO/DSO single / double socket outlet.

FSU or FCU - fused spur / fused connection unit.

SFU or S/FSU - switched fused spur.

MCB - minature circuit breaker.

RCD - residual current device. (EN61008)

RCBo / Rccb - residual current circuit breaker (EN61009)

ELCB - earth leakage circuit breaker (early, obsolete type of RCD)

M/C - metal clad.

TPH / TPN - Three phase / Three phase and neutral.

TTFN - Ta-ta for now

BIL / B-I-L / bil - Brother-In-Law

CPC - Circuit Protective Conductor.

Hope these help you gain further understanding of the posts. P.M. me if you think any are missing off the list.
