Default Shorthand.

I know I am old and not up to date, but, tell me what are all the shorthand initials you people put in your posts, what do they mean? for example LOL.

From one old guy to another, I found this site an invaluable resource for figuring out those shorthand things. The address has a shorthand thing already loaded, just ignore it and change the query window to what you want to find. Have fun!!
