Has anyone considered putting a small lexicon together to cover expedient comuter syntax?

I know I'm sometimes stumped Duh!! Here's my first contribution

1. IMHO we all know is in my humble opinion
2. BTW = By the Way
3. FYI = For your info.
4. HTH = Hope this helps
5. Lol = This was tough til someone tipped me of laugh out loud!

We need to avoid such long acryontms such as DIRT Don't intentionally remove this (I just made this up !) otherwise we could end up with DIRT on your vehicle ha-ha!

Captain Jack gets a little wierd late evenings!

CaptainJ,
I think it's a good idea. I was also wanting to start a glossary of model terms for beginners (and intermediates) to explain things like "Future" and "OOP".

Stay tuned and I will try to get it active.

Thanks,
Jim

Oh....great. Now we're all going to be speaking in Pig Latin or Phonetics or Acronymics. Yeah, add a little military 'jargon' in there and our communications will be elevated to the next level.

P.S. Personally I'm contacting the singer James Brown to see if he'll be so kind as to be my interpreter!
Actually, on second thought, I'm going to stick to an old standby.....ENGLISH.

Yeah, could you imagine the next post looking like this:

I need info on this kit "____":

IIRC, I thought the kit was OOP and didn't want to build it OOB. So, I chose to use some PE along with other AM's. IMHO I thought it would make you LOL, concidering I have no idea what I'm saying.
HTH
PS: BTW, could anyone lead me away from here???

I had all I could handle with acronyms during the time I played Everquest.

The basic ones are not too hard, but when a bunch of teenagers start combining letters, symbols, etc to mean something, it'll make your head spin, haha. It was like trying to decipher code. I don't think the German or Japanese codes from WWII could hold a flame to the teenage "d00d speak" of today

Ok....we now have an online Glossary of Terms (see link at bottom of main menu). Send me any suggestions, however I will primarily be looking for model related terms. I will add BRB, AFK, etc later. Bedtime now.

:-) Mein Gott in himmel, what hav I begun?? Anways, I think doing is always better than not, and there are a few terms there that I find quizzical to say the least. There may be other lexicons elsewhere, but this one is (or shall be) ours! This site just keeps on keep'n on.
