I’m not sure where to find the meaning to abbreviations I sometimes see here. Is there a list of these somewhere?
The one I’m puzzled over is: “ppp”

Can you link to where you saw it? Context might help me figure it out.

Stovebolt search of "ppp" brings up Photo Posting Process, Pigeon Poop Patina, and one other thread where I can't find the "ppp", but it does not bring up this thread.

Usually means point to point protocol.

But, in this forum, it's probably a keyboard with a sticky p key.

PPP ppp usually means different things to different people.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/PPP (for about 50 meanings)

Being a retired old-school computer geek, Point to Point Protocol was also the first meaning for me (I have used it).

I go with Gord’s sticky key theory.
