If you are running an MSPNP 94/95 or 96/97 I need you to check something for me. PM me so I can tell you what I need.

Thanks.

Even if you have a custom built MSI, if you have the 4 bar Map Daddy sensor you might be able to help me.




Poll:

Who thinks it should be "a MSPNP" and who thinks the correct grammar is "an MSPNP" ?

I say "an". M is pronounced "em" which is a vowel sound. **** proper grammar.

with an acroynm, it can be an "a" or an "an" it just depends on how you think it sounds better. In this case I think "an" works best, as I rear em-esPNP

You only use "an" when the following word begins with a vowel.

a MSQ file

an exhaust gas leak

Paul did you get your issue resolved?

Dammit you are all wrong. The "a" or "an" isn't needed.

"Who here runs MSPNP?" "If you are running MSPNP?"

These are perfectly complete sentences.

Whenever I write anything, I have to go back and take out all the worthless verbiage that most of us tend to throw in. See I just did it myself! I didn't have to put in "that" in the last sentence. "that most of us tend" reads better simply as "most of us tend".

If people keep wasting perfectly good words we could run out of them soon!
