R u redy 4 uni's txt msj classes?
IF. . . U. . . do no ndrstnd dis sntns u nd 2 lern txt.lingo. If you do comprehend, you are obviously already in possession of a full understanding of the mysteries of text-speak and need read no further.

For the rest of us, perhaps those of a more mature persuasion, there is Glasgow's Strathclyde University and that institution's attempt to rescue us from the darkness of Earth B.T. - the world Before Text.

Mobile phone users of a certain age are queuing up to join university seminars that unlock the world of texting.

" I have more minutes on my cell phone plan than I can ever use,...Maybe I'm missing something here, but text messaging seems to be the most ridiculous waste of money ever invented."

I have never understood text-messaging. I have more minutes on my cell phone plan than I can ever use, so why would I want to pay extra to labor over typing characters on that little keypad?

Maybe I'm missing something here, but text messaging seems to be the most ridiculous waste of money ever invented.
