    Okay, I've been hanging out here for a while. I know J6P. There's a new anacronym being used in the hardware sections that I don't know though - WAF. What's it mean? C'mon, let me in on the joke [​IMG]

    The term "WAF" isn't new, but it seems to be enjoying a revival. It's probably a sign of the rapidly spreading HT epidemic. Or perhaps the rise of a new generation of husbands properly trained to say, "Yes, dear".

    From today's Boston Globe:
    Boston Globe: WAF
    I think we've all been there at some point...
    How come there's no HAF? (You want to get curtains that cost how much???)

    The trick for curtains would be to get them and install them and if I noticed they were new, I could ask about the cost. She'd get away with that one every time...

    I don't understand why there has to be an "AF" either way.

    If you're making your own money, spend it any way you damn well please.

    It's not about the cost. I can afford just about any equipment I want at this point...

    It is about the way it looks in a shared space. If I made a special HT room I could equip it with monoblocks and a projection screen but that isn't what I want to do. So we deal with the looks/function issues...

    WAF = Winnebagos Are Fun.

    I have no idea how it morphed into "Wife Acceptance Factor". Shame.

    Two things I've learned from the 2+ years I've been into HT:
    1. I'm damn glad to be single.
    2. I must complete my dream HT BEFORE getting married [​IMG]

    I found the magic-key to WAF in my home - Netflix.

    My wife has been surfing it and now has 30 movies in our cue.

    nirvana!
