Primer on 'Leet Speak'

Here's a detailed explanation on the IM communication technique (and parental subterfuge) called LeetSpeak, also spelled l33tspe/\k, and 7eetsp34k. There's many other interesting forms, but I just can't think of all of 'em.

Microsoft's "A Parents Primer on Computer Slang" can be found HERE.

Watch what your kids are typing...this article can be your secret decoder ring, or maybe your Enigma machine.

Hi Denis,

I have been listening to your show for a few weeks now, and really like it. I just didn't want to be just a lurker!

I was looking for your e-mail, but couldn't find it on the site!

Wanted you to know that I mentioned your show in my last show (#82).

Keep up the good work! Love the show.
