How to say IP?

Altreus Hmm I should have checked the licence on Inline::Lua
dwu orochi_: licence it and people will steal it anyway :)
Yaakov Well, you can try to steal that, but it would be like a mouse stealing a battle tank.
dwu Altreus: you mean acronym?
Altreus Perl license
Altreus dwu: n
Altreus IP is not pronounced as a word so it is not an acronym.
Altreus At least not in the original meaning of the word: which is the only meaning given by a majority of dictionaries
Yaakov Yes, it's not a true acronym, though the word now has that baggage.
orochi_ Ip Ip Ip!
Altreus ni!
* orochi_ runs away
dwu Altreus: i say ip... :)
Yaakov IP would be an abbreviation.
dwu also, initials? but isms are cool.
rindolf I see Eye.Pea.
dwu oooh yes.
dwu and dead people?
* rindolf is listening to Sesame Street - Yip Yip Martians
Altreus dwu: Intent is involved; just because you say it as a word does not mean it was meant to be said as a word ;)
