Can't reply there as, the thread you asked in is now closed, but 'GIMF' is 'Google Is My Friend'.

A variant on 'GIYF', that modern and slightly less caustic version of 'RTFM' that is more applicable these days.

i.e., I looked up RTW via Google rather than asking here, and perhaps being told 'GIYF'.

But looking up GIMF doesn't list the way I was using it above, though it does list a startlingly ruder version of GIYF, which I certainly didn't intend... :-)
