PLM World Announces

Our thoughts are with those impacted by the devastating floods in Nashville, Tennessee and the PLM World board has decided to “relocate” our Siemens PLM Connection user group conference to Dallas on June 27- July 2.  The overwhelming feedback from you, the user community, was to continue to have the conference this year and preferably in the next several months.  We are very pleased to announce that we have set a new date and location for the upcoming Siemens PLM Connection 2010 event:

Where:  Dallas, TX
When:  27 June – 2 July 2010

After looking for other event sites in Nashville during the same time, we were encouraged by the Nashville tourism office to go elsewhere because of the sustained damage, cleanup and needed reconstruction effort.  We are currently in the final stages of signing the contract with the hotel in Dallas and will let you know early next week once the contract is in place with the exact details. Your registration will be maintained but you’ll need to rebook your hotel which will be on the site once we announce the venue. In addition, we are also allowing you to transfer your registration to another person if scheduling is an issue.

Please watch for another communication early next week.

Thanks again for your support.

Internet Slang Words and Computer Slang

InternetSlang – Internet Dictionary

On this site you will find a list of slang terms, acronyms and abbreviations as used in websites, ICQ chat rooms, blogs, SMS, and Internet forums – a complete dictionary of slang.
There are many such internet slang words in use, some are more widely understood than others, and new ones are evolving all the time. This list is large but inevitably incomplete; however it contains the more commonly used slang words and slang terms. 4420 acronyms are listed at present – if you know of another that should be here then please add an acronym.
Note that a few of the internet abbreviations stand for phrases containing words that may be offensive to some people. In those cases we have substituted asterisks, or similar, for the internet slang words in question.
