"Thanks For Your Help In This Matter"
The abbreviation for a term commonly used at an Information Technology helpdesk. It is used in electronic communication when you would like to thank someone for doing something without typing out the entire statement.

B:"Strongly lifted old plant container off wheely thing. Held older container for Lee while she softly lifted the plant into new container. Held plant while Lee tied the bands around the new support stick."
Higginbotham's Constant (denoted as lower-case 'h') is a mathematical constant which represents the total sum of all practical intelligence on any given planet.
The implication is that the higher the population of sentient beings on the planet, the lower the average intelligence will be among any large sample set. This does not preclude beings of higher intellect, but it requires that on average, there is one person as far below average as the former being is above average.
Person 1: "Why does it seem like the people staffing the company helpdesk get dumber every day?"
Person 2: "Higginbotham's Constant in action, my friend..."
Person 1: "I was on jury duty the other day. Have you seen what the trash of society wears into a courtroom? How has society lost so much respect for anyone and anything else in just a few decades?"
Person 2: "Higginbotham strikes again..."
Hope This Helps or Hope That Helped. Used frequently on tech-support type forums, and also jokingly as a dismissive term after offering no help whatsoever. Often followed by HAND.
Q. "I can't fined the Word file I'm looking for in Word! It was there this morning, but now it's gone! Can someone help?"
A. "Try using search to look for a word in the document itself. If you're on a Mac, that means Spotlight. It will be really quick, but will only work if you haven't overwritten or deleted the file. HTH, HAND!"
Have a Nice Day. Common sign-off at the end of a tech support forum post, often used in conjunction with HTH. Also used (ineffectively) to placate those for whom no help is available.
