What does PIF stand for?
« on: April 16, 2015, 04:35:44 AM »
Looked but didn't find an answer. Or maybe I just got lazy :)
The only PIF i've ever been familiar with is "Program Information File" from the days when MS Windows ran on top of DOS.
Whatever it is, it sounds interesting and as soon as I have something to offer up.
Probably be a pedal build or something. I dunno.

Parabu Innua Flarble. It's from a Cimmerian text and roughly translates to 'sausage of death'*

It's Innuus, not Innua. Sausage takes the masculine form.

No, he's right. It's masculine but in genitive case.

My Wife and I call it "kilb" for short.  In fact I have replaced the lyrics to that super-annoying Jessie J song so it goes..."bang bang, I want some Kilb"

I have issues.  Still want some grilled kilb though.

I thank my Portuguese people for my love of "Kilb" (That may stick in my house hold now) and the ability to turn every conversation into an argument... its a gift.

I've read Pratchett too many times. I associate that with the Canting Crew, now. (Whatshisface, Foul Ole Ron, and Foul Ole Ron were arguing over sixpence, Ron being capable of keeping a good argument going on his own...)
