    I know we try not to discuss electrical practices, but I doubt this violates any policies.

    To avoid skewing the results, please hold all answers and guesses until after the poll closes on Sept. 24, 2008. Thanks.

    I'm only guessing, of course, but; (possibly skewing answer deleted)?

    Note that I did not ask for the answer or for speculations. To avoid skewing the results, please hold all answers and guesses until after the poll closes on Sept. 24, 2008. Thanks.:)

    OPD... What does an Overfilling Prevention Device on my barbecue's propane tank have to do with lighting? ;)

    The funny thing is the number of things that each acronym could stand for.

    Sorry, apparently I was being blind.... definitely didn't notice the poll. I just saw the title and assumed you were actually asking a legitimate question.

    de nada, Malabaristo. Bowing to external pressure, eliminating "OCD." My apologies to the five of you who voted that way.

    It's funny. You don't even need to be in the theatre industry to have heard these acronyms.:cool:

    There are way too many meanings for any acronym. What's the context?

    Reminds me of a riddle though:

    Q. What does DNA stand for?

    A. National Dyslexia Association

    I could give you a hint, but I'm not sure how far is too far. Both are something I have to deal with on a regular basis. Thats why I know what they stand for.

    Not to be rude, but the forum is lighting. I don't think you'll find a lot of meanings within that context.

    Sure you will. OPD/OCPD is most definitely lighting related.:cool:

    Thanks for the clue, I have an Obsessive Compulsive Disorder about OverCurrent Prevention Devices. Fortunately the Orlando Police Department keeps in touch with the Ottawa Criminal Policy Directorate and it's not a danger to others.
