    CC.com puter lingo

    this is mainly for the admins but hey, it's a free country. I'm obviously a newbie and thought it would be a good idea to have a list of the acronyms (puter lingo) of this forum. we all know lol, lmao, faq, etc. (no play on words with the 'etc'. Ha!) i quickly figured out LEO's and sorts like that but shorts like OTOH and IMO escape me. i read fast and absorb all the great info here but come to a screeching halt when i hit some of those 'caps'! I'd appreciate someone in their spare time to summarize a quick set up with what pops up in their mind and create a quick 'cheat sheet' so to speak . that would rock. thanks.

    FWIW = For What It's Worth
    BUG = Back-up gun
    BG = Bad Guy
    GG = Good Guy
    OMO = Only My Opinion

    I work, but I'm a boss. I can be groggy and still tell people what to do.

    Here is some more shorthand that I have seen here, and my interpretation of same.

    +1 = I agree with the above post.
    +100 = I emphatically agree with the above post.
    +1000 = I am incontinent as a result of my emphatic agreement with the above post.

    NetLingo.com is a good place to start. It's got all of the common ones, including quite a few that I have never heard of.

    I added a good few to another thread recently and forget where that was now

    IIRC - if I remember correctly
    AFAIK - as far as I know.

    Must get a full list made out sometime - these always occur at times for folks who are not so used to the lingo.
