Tech Tidbit: ZOMG

You may have seen the term "ZOMG" thrown around on the Internet and wondered what the heck it means. The acronym "OMG" makes enough sense ("Oh My God"), but what is that random "Z" doing there? Well, legend has it that the "Z" was originally a typo; a failed attempt to hit the Shift key while capitalizing the ever so popular term "OMG". The "Z" eventually began to grow on geeks worldwide and is now commonly used for dramatic emphasis.

So there you go.

Joe Says: For added emphasis, you can also use "ZOMFG", but I won't go into that one. I'm sure you can figure out what that means on your own ;)

This is Joe, signing off.
