I dare say Carl-Uno's ipp is probably nothing more than a blip ;-).

I had one of my creative moments over the week-end and started thinking
about the times when everybody has access to IPP. We need a new verb, like
in "I will fax this over to you!"

If we change the pronunciation of IPP to sound like "ipp" (as in "hip") then
it becomes a lot easier to use as a verb. Try these sentences out:

- "I will ipp the brochure over to you right away!"
- "He ipped me the contract yesterday, so I could sign it the same day."
- "By ipping out the new price list to all our branches over night, we are
ahead of the competition again."

Something for the next Webster Dictionary edition? The Microsoft spell
checker also needs updating.
