Feel free to PM me. In my spare time I mix with some very earthy steam engineers, I'm sure it won't be worse than anything they say!

From what I know of BURMA, I can't see I'd get told off.

Of course, SOB has other meanings. In America, for example. Son of a b***h - one reason why I'm not keen on abbreviations: they sometimes get in the way.

In the late 1990s, the government introduced the HIP - the Health Improvement Programme. However, there was another HIP in existence - the Housing Investment Programme - and there were occasional opportunities for confusion. So the government decided in its infinite wisdom, that unlike people it could not have two HIPs. And the Health Improvement Programme became a HIMP.

Which is fine, except for the fact that the CHIP (Childrens Health Improvement Programme) now became a CHIMP!!
