I see the same references used by contributors of the forum, such as SWMBO etc .

But what does MOSCOW stand for and do you know any other amusing synonyms ?

Acronyms, actually!

SWMBO is the only one I use on here - others will no doubt contribute.

Fortunately we don't need to use the ones that servicemen serving overseas used when we were at war - sometimes to evade the censors:

SWALK - Sealed With A Loving Kiss

ITALY - I Trust And Love You

BURMA - Be Undressed Ready, My Angel

NORWICH - (K)Nickers Off Ready When I Come Home

“The MoSCoW method is a prioritization technique…an acronym derived from the first letter of each of four prioritization categories (Must have, Should have, Could have, and Won't have), with the interstitial Os added to make the word pronounceable.” (Wikipedia)

Where would we be without Google?
