Hi,

I fancy logical puzzles and computer games. I'll have a look around and see if I find some useful threads around here.

Edit: Oh, BTW. Is there somewhere I can learn expressions that are used in the threads (meltdown etc.)? I feel that I might need to expand my vocabulary on frequently used terms around these parts.

Thanks. I realized that looking for explanations of terms/vocabulary on this site didn't seem worthwhile, so I'll probably use Google when I'm uncertain from now on.

Welcome!

I always have trouble with the abbreviations folks use on this site, but I'm catching on! The most important one, though, is we refer to folks without autism at Neurotypical or NT. You probably already knew that, but just in case.

Welcome! Google is my goto for phrases and abbreviations I don't understand in general. Makes it easier the majority of the time.

Welcome to WrongPlanet. To learn more about the terminology I would recommend Amythest Schaber's YouTube series called Ask an Autistic. There is also a helpful wiki on aspects of Autism.

If you know the language, search for:

"Fru Blom" +
"Alex Brinchmann" +
"Per Aabel"

That's the basis for the "name". The second part of it is a more or less randomly chosen ending.
