Since there are a lot of people here that are unfamiliar with web-abbreviations, and there are also a lot of us that think in that language - I thought I'd start a thread to help people figure them out. Please add any that I miss.

Note to moderator: If a lot of people keep checking this thread, you might want to make it a stick.
