And devious little me got to determine what the acronyms were....

So, I can recall that we had at least:

New FirmWare ----> NFW (aka No Fing Way)
BIOS Fix in Development -----> BFD (Big Fing Deal)
Fix Underway -----> FU (obvious)

And those were the ones that I got away with. I think I also tried a few more blatant ones that got shot down (as if FU isn't already pretty blatant).

Thankfully, it was an internal database, so customers never saw the acronyms.
