[access-uk] Re: TEXTING WITH TALKS

Ian - I don't like predictive text and do use short hand.

Bob, this is nothing new, the telegraph operators used short hand
abbreviations from the mid 19th century onward.
Sometimes groups of letters such as:
bcnu, cuagn, cul ...
or other numeric codes were used by companies for specific use within
that company, two which survive are 
73 and 88
which are 'best wishes' and 'hugs and kisses'.
