One of the survey questions on a job I am applying for is:
"What is your favorite TLA and why?"  

First, what is a TLA?  Second, which of the following would you pick and why?
FTP, CMS, URL, SSL, DNS, RFP, CRM

It's part of the "fun" questions.
It's a Three Letter Acronym, which is supposed to be funny because of the paradox.
The second part of the question is probably a part of creating your psych/knowledge profile (or you could just blab on about every single one of those in the list, showing off you have extensive knowledge about all these tech related acronyms)

haha, I guess I have already answered the question then.  I could not find anything on the web relative to IT that defined TLA.  So I have already started an "essay" about each listed acronym that I a familiar with and planned to research the rest.  So none of the acronyms in the list are particularly closely related?

Closely as in tech related, mostly internet related (isn't everything by now)?

Thanks.  I have deciphered a couple of the TLA's that I am not familiar with.

And I just got "it".. TLA "Three Letter Acronym".  :O

I was going to go with "The Last Answer" and pick CRM!

I think I will have my second cup of coffee now and get my 3 yr old ready for naptime!

Points coming.

As a joke I started calling Acronyms with more than three letters, ETLA's (Extended Three Letter Acronyms)...  ;)
