RE: FW: CMU Site Wall using 2001CBC -- Warning: Comical Aside

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Humor pre re na'ta.

Pre re na'ta is literally defined from latin as "according as circumstances may require". It is most often appreviated in the medical world as PRN. Medical people all know PRN is "as needed", but try to find a medical person who knows what PRN really means.

Therefor I was merely writing "humor as needed". We will do German another time.

Harold,
Sorry about getting your name wrong.  I was using all available
cylinders dredging up my old German vocabulary.  As for the
Latin...well...at least I got your name right this time.  :)
(Humor preceded the birth of the king?  Humor has no peers?)
