Sent DNF

Forgive my ignorance of beanie parlance...but I noticed in logbooks lots of entries as 'SENT dnf'. How is something sent that wasn't finished?

Its just an oddity of how UKC logs boulder problems, nothing to do with beanie parlence and all to do with UKC quirks.

I've sent something before and it Did Not Arrive is this the same thing? I believe there is a forum for posties at royalmailchat... most people here are climbers not senders.

Maybe they have been to the post office, dispatched a parcel and are waiting for it to arrive at it's destination?

Or is this based around one of the funny slang words which mean nothing and are used by pretenders and 'trendies' so that they sound as though they know what they are doing. The tech world is full of them and it appears to be infiltrating normal life. Try ordering a white coffee in a café and you will see what I mean!

P.s I admit to being an old fart and sometimes a grammar Nazi.

I think this is what Mallory and Irvine put in their logbooks about Everest which has caused ever such a confusion.

Got any examples from the tech world?  Being from the tech world, I can't think of any I use that mean nothing.  They may well mean nothing to you, but that isn't exactly the same thing.

I'm assuming you weren't in grammar Nazi mode when you inserted that apostrophe.

That would explain a few of the routes that I've, er, 'attempted'!

Old timer; er, yes, and sent DNF is a known unknown. 

I think a sent DNF is actually an unsent as it did not complete.
