Sorry. My bad.  I forget about the lingo sometimes.

post or rather POST.  Power On Self Test.  The video bios people call
a card that has been initialized by the BIOS 'posted.'   Probally
because it happens during the BIOS which used to be much more of a
POST.  Nowdays BIOS is a whole different beast but the 'posting' term

posted = initialized.
