'BUMP' is pushing a thread back to the top of the list. As in "bump it up". People do it if their thread hasn't been answered in a while, to stop it disppearing down to page 2, 3 4 etc.

Does that make sense?


Thanks davek  :)

I have a new addition suggestion.
edc stands for everyday carry. But whar about:
edc2 or edcc - everyday carry capability.
I have used the term in my post on how to make the edc pouch for edc2. See in the pouches sub-forum. If you carry several toolbits for example your ability to do more is so much better than just the standard tool.

Ok, my boredom got the best of me as I'm still fairly new to this forum and searching for ideas. It brought me to this thread and I now know way too much about EWCM (just the first view on a google search no more), dilligaf and many other cool/ strange acronyms. I also have one I learned on a trip I took a couple of weeks ago thanks to a friend, SFI (simple effing instruction). Could be used I guess when trying to relate to others that cannot follow SFI.

That could be true... Though Leatherman's website says 'pocket'...

http://www.leatherman.com/about/history:

Since 1983, we've been making tools that can endure just about anything and come back to work tomorrow. When Tim Leatherman and his business partner Steve Berliner started the company with the Pocket Survival Tool (PST) they had no idea that someday they would have more than 30 models and a full 90,000 square-foot facility here in Portland, Oregon with more than 400 employees. Here's a look at all the Leatherman tools past and present.
