RTM, ASAP, ...

Pri uporabi ra~unalni{kih medijev poleg sme{kov (glej drugi prispevek) pogosto naletimo tudi na razli~ne kratice. Nedavno sem bral novi~ko, kjer se nekdo jezi, da ve~ina novincev na Internetu ne pozna okraj{av in to povzro~a ~udne zaplete. Da {e vas ne bi proglasili za nevedne`e, si lahko preberete pomembni del te novi~ke.

Welcome to the world of acronyms ....

So how do you use these acronyms? Again, the process is really simple. In the middle of your message, all you have to do is type in the acronym that you want. Just rember to use all capitol letters. In the list you will notice that some of the acronyms are capitilized and some of them aren't. This is not a typo *g* (see below for definition). The ones that are capitilized are ones that you would use in the middle of a sentance. For example: "Bye I will CUL!". The ones that are in lower case are action acronyms. These acronyms are symolizing an action that is being done by the user. These acronyms need to be put between two "*"'s. For example: "That was a really funny joke *lol*". So just keep these rules in mind and you should have no problem using acronyms.

V "Raglji 12" smo vam povedali, da lahko do Math Reviews pridete le preko ra~unalnika VEGA. Ker ste se v zadnjem ~asu navadili na "klikanje" z mi{ko in program Netscape, smo se v RC zelo potrudili (malo se moramo pohvaliti sami, ~e nas `e vi ne) in dosegli, da je Math Reviews dosegljiv tudi z osebnih ra~unalnikov. Zaradi omejitev, ki jih postavlja AMS, ne z vseh, ampak s tistih, ki imajo IP {tevilko 67 (karkoli to `e je). Poskusite - v najslab{em primeru boste pa~ na istem kot prej - dostopu preko VEGE.

Torej, za`enete NetScape in vnesete naslov:

Ko zagledate sliko (spodaj),

"kliknete" na Start MathSciNet Search. Na zaslon dobite vnosno masko:

Vpi{ete iskani pogoj in pritisnete gumb Start search. ^ez nekaj trenutkov (par sekund, minut, ...) zagledate rezultate.

V kolikor si `elite ogledati zapis v polni obliki, "kliknete" na {tevilko na za~etku.
