    Russian internet speak

    I think it should be important also learn how the 'young' russian people type on the internet, you know net 'slang' eg in lithuanian we often write lithuanian with weird kind of russian translit eg,

    Sveikas, kaip laikotės? We will type Swejkas kajp lajkotes? and things like that. How would russian abbreviate words etc, in teh chat room, text message etc

    Here's some words:
    HDD - Винт
    Keyboard - Клава
    Files - Файло
    CD-ROM - Компакт, сидюк
    Emty CD-R(W) = болванка, to record CD-R = нарезать болванку
    20 Mb = 20 метров
    RAM = мозги
    Mainboard = мать
    Driver = дрова
    Mail = мыло
    ICQ = Аська
    Button = Батон
    Malfunction = Глюк
    Computer = Комп, тачка, писюк
    Windows = Мастдай
    "@" (at) character = собака (john@mail.ru is pronounced Джон, собака, мэйл точка ру)

    Example:
    1. Задачка, которую хороший программист решит за пару минут, а хороший
    физик сойдет с ума: Ася весит 4,2 метра. За сколько времени она скачается, если ширина канала - 5 кило в секунду?
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    ужас -узяс
    сейчас-ща
    точно-точняк
    короче-корч
    можно-мона\моня
    ладно-лана\лн\лано
    когда-када
    спасибо-спсб\пасиба
    пожалуйста-пазалуста

    but this list can be endless cuz usually abbreviations vary from person to person.

    u could try to pronounce the word and to guess what it sounds alike with. guess that would help

    спс - спасибо
    де - где
    ты рус? - ты русский/ая/ое

    Эти сокращения пользуются в игре "AWPlanet", когда есть много русских, эстонских, и литовских.
    Литовские обычно приветствуют с "swx".
    I am a native English speaker currently learning Russian -- all corrections are appreciated!

    I noticed that and I found it odd too. Ah well.... Each unto his own.
    You can never be truly wise if you havn't been a fool first.

    Please correct any Russian language mistakes I make.

    А еще есть "йезык падонкаф" - письменный язык, который широко используется в интернете.

    А ещё есть язык фидошных кащенитов, и ещё много других способов изуродовать и исковеркать русский язык.

    Не понимаю смысл этого топика. Вы, что ли, собрались собрать здесь исчерпывающий список всех возможных издевательств над русскими словами?

    Я думаю, если иностранец увидит слово "предураг" или "кросафчег", он его не поймет... (если не будет знать про этот "письменный язык").

    Yeah, I understand it might be, but they are weirdly lazy to press a simple " : " and not lazy at all when it comes to " )))))) "

    :P

    That's simple, Erika. To type a colon, it takes one hold of the shift key with your left hand and one press of the colon key with your right hand. To type a closing brace, it just takes to hold two keys simultaneously for a period of time.

    I was quite confusibabbled before i discovered that "ya" is often transliterated as "q", takzhe ch = 4

    this is understandable... but what is really annoying is when "zh" is transliterated as "g" which can be very confusing. then "j" can mean "zh" or "y"
