PCMCIA: People Can't Remember

Computer Industry Acronyms

 Please Do Not Take Sales Person Advice Order of Layer's on the OSI Data
Model: Physical, DataLink, Network, Transport, Session, Presentation,
Application (This can get a little confuseing if you say "Don't" instead of
"Do Not")

From: "Dave Noice" <dnoice#NoSpam.copper.net> Please Do Not Throw Sausage Pizza

Please Do Not Touch Sally's Panties Again (This one may be politically
incorrect, but it DID help me memorize the layers)

And for those who can't remember to say Do Not instead of Don't, we can go
the other direction (Application, Presentation, Session, Transport,
Network, Data-Link, Physical)

Through the 1990s, whenever I heard about ISDN, I always thought "It  Still
Does Nothing."

It's because the standard documents for ISDN came out around 10 years
before you could actually buy any product.
When Broadband ISDN came out (B-ISDN) there was around 3 years between
standard and product, and we knew that as "But It Still Does Nothing".
