D.I.Y.

I've been staring at the name of this achievement for months, and I still don't have a clue what it stands for. Does that make me a Deficient Idiot Yokel? Anybody - please reveal the mysteries! Butterbur (talk) 09:54, 14 October 2017 (BST)

Ha ha! Thanks. Never would have guessed. "Acronym" is my fifth language, and a bit of a fifth wheel at that; I find it difficult to acquire the vocabulary. (It's seldom remembered that the original meaning of "to encrypt" is "to place in a tomb".) Appropriate for most uses today, when one wants to bury the meaning. Least accessible of the dead languages, where learning it becomes a real undertaking, and applying it induces mummery overflow!
Ah. That's better - getting a dead weight off my chest. ;) Butterbur (talk) 17:15, 14 October 2017 (BST)
