    Well here is the Acronym Lookup Link and I have found out that
    Thor actually stands for:

    Tactical Helicopter Offensive Response (Blue Thunder, movie)
    Tandy High-Performance Optical Recording
    Tape Handling Option Routines
    Tera Hertz Operational Reachback
    Tiered Hierarchy Overlayed Research

    SMASH was pretty good, too ... :cool:

  4. It's annoying, when you paste it you have to colour the writing black. I don't know how to get rid of the white background. I could just type it, but...

    I forgot about this one. Time to introduce this to a
    new generation of TB'ers.

    I think that baable up there had something to do with
    the upgrade. Of course, it could be just Leinad too... :ninja:
