This is how I operate too - I use a lot of abbreviations (one particularly 
hairy program I have has "havesnddrv", "iielc", "dblgrx" (have sound 
driver, IIe language card, double resolution graphics respectively)).

Of course anyone familiar with the domain of what the program is doing 
(it's an Apple ][ emulator) will probably understand the terminology.
