jaylectricity: Yotto: #112: F and D are not interchangeable. It's either FYI or DIY. It can't be both.

wildcardjack: I approve of reading large numbers of these FYI type things

Actual headline: FIY

As in, fix-it-yourself.

I'm not calling you guys out or calling you stupid or inattentive. I was just quite amused at all the different confusing positions on a three letter abbreviation. Because of Yotto's comment I assumed the headline was a typo. It took wildcardjack's post to make me realize what the hell was really going on.


I was not confused as to the ordering of the letters, and I ordered them the way I meant.

I did not see the possibility of "Fix It Yourself" (or "Fark It Yourself") when I posted. But in my defense, the article linked uses DIY and is full of things you do, not things you fix. Or Fark.
