That wiki article is the only place I've ever seen it referred to as "Head-up" opposed to "Heads-up".

What's funny is that it sites a reference at the bottom of the page which uses the terminology "Heads-Up Display". So yeah, the term is "Heads Up Display", not "Head Up Display".

The web-board software requires that each post have at least 10 characters worth of original text.

"/10chars" is 8, so you can say "No" and then tack on "/10chars" to get past the limit.

SNS - Still No Sticky!

A lot of work going into this thread. Does it merit a sticky? I think so!

This is a good thread for the STO-specific terms, but things like IIRC, AFK, AFAIK, etc. are all common Internet acronyms.

IIRC = If I Recall Correctly

Terms like these are not common to everyone and that's the point of this thread, anyway, thank you for your help, you get a thumbs up!
