Anonymous:DS: Deinde Scriptum

PS stands for Post Scriptum (written after)
As to DS, there are quite a lot of possibilities... Maybe Data Sheet?

Anonymous:DS comes from a Swedish habbit of writing DS after PS. DS means densamme, which can be translated to "the same", or "the same as the author" of the original text before PS.
PS: Hence it should be quite irrelevant to write DS after this text.
Anonymous:Ds, is Swedish and stands for "Den samme", as The Same, meaning the post scriptum is written by the same person who wrote the letter above.
Anonymous:Yep - I can confirm this as I was wondering why there was a DS at the end of an email from my Swedish girlfriend!
Anonymous:That's hilarious! I just googled this to find out what the DS stands for that I always put after my PS--I'm Swedish!
Anonymous:Ds stands for "den samme" or "the same person" (who wrote the letter).
