// [abbreviation, from the alt.fan.warlord] n. Big Ugly ASCII Font --- a special form of ASCII art. Various programs exist for rendering text strings into block, bloob, and pseudo-script fonts in cells between four and six character cells on a side; this is smaller than the letters generated by older banner (sense 2) programs. These are sometimes used to render one's name in a sig block, and are critically referred to as `BUAF's. See warlording.
