Phes, isn't that common knowledge???? Everyone knows what it is even though they don't know what the acronym stands for ;)

But we can include it if you wish ;)

I thought IMO was common knowlegde too.

However we must bare in mind some parts of the world are not as technically advanced as other parts and not everybody has access to DSL.  Myself only using a 56K dial up connect, though this is due to my own laziness and stupidity as it probably would be cheaper for me sign up for a DSL plan.  Mind you DSL has only be avaiable in my area for just over 12 months now.  But that's not the point!

The point is some places DSL isn't in wide spread use and many may not know what it is.  Further more it many regions its also know as "broadband" or ADSL which may lead to some confusion.  Now techically they are slightly different things (which I'm not going into right this moment) however different places have slightly different interpretations on what they actually are.

I think what we're providing here is "clarity".

Excellent!  You have done well Master Yoda.

I can assure you my granny wouldn't know what DSL was.  Even if you explained it to her she'd be completely and utterly and distinctly and absolutely and astounding baffled.

You and your TAWT...  At least future users will immediately know what it is, providing they can find the Glossary Thread that is...

well this link might be useful... notable extras it features:
"CRAPP: Crummy Ramp and Pit Plate - the baseplate with a ramp and pit."
"ALE: Adult LEGO Enthusiast. This term was coined as an alternative to AFOL, since it is easier to pronounce."
"BSB: Black Seas Barracuda, 6285." SES,RBR etc (Phes, how could you miss the ships? ; )
"MIB: Mint In Box/bag"
"MISB: Mint In Sealed Box/bag"
"NLSO: Non-Lego Significant Other."
"POOP: Piece [that can or should be made] of Other Pieces." (this one is new to me, but I like it...)
"S@H: LEGO Shop at Home"

and for Mr Yoda:
"SPUD: Special/Single Piece/Purpose Ugly/Useless/UnLEGOish Design/Decorative. Many people think that the many meanings of this acronym make it a great one, as it is not Single Purpose at all."

JTH - Jabba the Hutt
CTT - Clone Turbo Tank
AT-TE - All Terrain Tactical Enforcer
AT-AT - All Terrain Armoured Transport
AT-ST - All Terrain Scout Transport
AT-PT - All Terrain Personal Transport
ULD - Ultimate Lightsaber Duel
DVT - Darth Vader Transformation / Deep Vein Thrombosis (possible from excessive LEGO building with lack of leg movement)

MF - millennium Falcon
FIIK - F***ed if I know!
OMYK - Only Master Yoda Knows!
RD - Red Dwarf (theme LEGO MUST make)

That's quite a list, Tua! It did help me for some things, until now I couldn't figure what IIRC meant. :-$
I'm surprised Yoda didn't add "OMYK - Only Master Yoda Knows!" to the list. :-P

I agree that captaintau's acronym list is great, but I did not incorporate all the SW acronyms just because we are a generalist site  ;-)

However this post is a valuable asset  *sweet* !!!

And Dillon, no need to add that because its a known fact  X-D  :-P

Instead of all the Star Wars acronyms for the films, how about OT for orginal trilogy and PT for prequel trilogy. Just a suggestion...

What is swooshing? :-$

I'd guess either moving a space ship around, with or without it leaving the hand of the swoosher?

Zooming the model around, with or without engine noises. And in some cases, with or without clothes. :-X
