TFC Try, Fail, Communicate This is a slightly better response to a question than RTFM. What it means is: Try whatever it is you are talking about. Then, if you fail, communicate back. Part of the reason for this response to a question is the data you acquire during your trial may be important and necessary for the person you are asking.
