    What does SDOS mean?

    Right, here's a chance for you youngsters to embarrass an old timer. I've been coming across SDOS in messages being sent by pupils on our Moodle site. I've Googled it but haven't come up with anything useful. What does it stand for?

    I've just asked the resident teenagers and they don't know - must be a Northern thing!

    EDIT

    They have just volunteered that SOS means Same old Sh**....

    This is quite handy, but doesn't cover your acronym http://www.netlingo.com/emailsh.cfm

    I think it means Six Degrees of Seperation....so it's SDoS rather than SDOS. Some garbage about knowing everyone in the world through another person....i've seen it used on myspace and i suppose they users feel they know everyone in the online commnity.

    Ofcourse i could be totally wrong....and it could actually mean Same Day Old shit or something lie that.

    I'm prepared to have egg on my face. That's EOMF.

    I think torledo's probably right too... as soon as I read it, it seemed familiar
