That, or the first two-thirds of the abbreviation 'NPC': 'Non-Player Character' :). Actually, I've never seen or used 'NP' to mean 'no problem'; perhaps I don't interact enough online to have picked up on all these little abbreviations. I just learned that <3 means 'heart'. At first, I thought it was a person reading a newspaper on the toilet :D. I mean, doesn't it look like a guy on the toilet reading a newspaper? ___________________________________________________________ Gesendet von Yahoo!
