  • Pet Peeves? Why would you keep a Peeve as a pet?
Book thing
« on: October 14, 2015, 05:30:16 PM »

I am now writing a book.
Can anyone make up an acronym for a Back Pack that stores information/data?
Something short, Like Personal information pack (Pip) or something like that.

Honesly Pip was really cute and I can't top that :P
Digital Information Access Pack? Diap? Sounds very roboty but is at least pronounceable? Ish? This is why I rely so heavily on baby name websites I'm sorry .-.
