The ACRONYMS HyperCard stack was the first way we published our acronyms -- before this website, and before they were called apronyms. You can read about how the stack came about here.

The stack and the acronyms in it have changed a lot since the first release, which contained only 1385 acronyms. You can find out how the stack has changed here or just download update lists to get the latest acronyms into an older version of the stack.

If you don't already have a copy of the stack, you can download version 3.4 from here. The download is 2.5MB, which includes:

ACRONYMS runs on Mac OS 7.1 to 9.2, or in the Classic Environment in Mac OS X. You will also need HyperCard (version 2.3 or later) or the free HyperCard Player from Apple.

If you use Mac OS X, try the OSX application instead. If you don't have a Mac, or if you want to see what the stack is like before you download it, you can view the acronyms through an online approximation of the stack's interface, commonly known as the online stack.
