Real Soon Now

Real Soon Now: [orig. from SF's fanzine community, popularized by
   Jerry Pournelle's column in "BYTE"] adv. 1. Supposed to be
   available (or fixed, or cheap, or whatever) real soon now according
   to somebody, but the speaker is quite skeptical.  2. When one's
   gods, fates, or other time commitments permit one to get to it (in
   other words, don't hold your breath).  Often abbreviated RSN.
