What are the standard abbreviations used in computer science?

First off, kudos for referring to TLAs (three letter acronyms) as “computer lingo" rather than “text speak" (I get the irrational urge to savagely bite people who insist t were invented to overcome the 140 character limit of the SMS system). The answer is pretty simple though. in the early days of public internet access we paid by the minute so getting a message across in an IRC chatroom was done quickly, email and Usenet often didn't have offline composition (some services required a telnet session to read and compose) — couple this with modems that might have a speed measured in bytes per second and the fact you may not have a local Point of Presence to dial into and things could get expensive fast. From there the lingo got adopted as a kinda de-facto dialect that newbies had to learn to fit in. There's also the thing with geeks/nerds being inherently lazy typists — the less characters we need to type, the better.

Erase PDF: All You Need to Know

There were two primary modes of transmission: The text-to-speech-style, that would output words in a fixed order based on the phonemes in the string, which were then concatenated phonetically (like this: [hæcʰɛtɒ.̚ʰɔdʰɛʰtʰɛʰ] rather than [hæçθɔ.̚̚ʰɔdθtʰɛʰtʰɛʰ]). Once the string was generated, the sound would be output and, again, concatenated phonetically. The video-to-speech, which output audio data with the words displayed phonetically but also in a fixed order. This format was called 'interleaved'. Both sorts of transmission used the same sort of data compression, both used a standard data format. For better or worse it was the first of what would eventually become the modern internet. It went by two names: TELESCOPE and DISPLAY. TELESCOPE was an early digital radio standard, used on the short-lived Worldwide Radio Telecommunication System (ARTS) operated by the US Navy (it was later adopted for use on military communications systems used by NATO)..
