    Just add the word "quilt" to it.

    For instance, you can see the difference between the results you would get for a search on "OBW" vs. "OBW quilt."

    Obviously, you're not looking for Original Buffalo Wings or the Ohio Business Weekly. ;-)

    "hst" alone will bring up links to info on the Hubble Space Telescope. ;-)
    But "hst quilt" will target right in on the appropriate description.

    The answer is usually right on the first results page, and you rarely ever need to click through for further information.
    isn't google great!?!

    what was the context in which it was used... use ITM in a sentence so we get an idea of the usage.

    my first thought was.. "I think, maybe".

    I love the game acromania not sure if it is still on the web anywhere. used to play it on irc (internet relay chat) if you are not familiar with irc, this might help

    apparently for itm, there are a lot of uses

    Just read the quilting board acronym list. Some of them are hilarious. I can just imagine Maxine typing them out. LOL

    Although sometimes I think she gets lazy and makes them up. Took me two solid days to figure this one out.

    ITM

    Can you guess?
