Here are some acronyms that I found on the web and keep handy when I am IM-ing peeple so that I know what they are saying....

Not all of the apply to SCS but if you IM it is nice to have a place to look it up. when i first got these I edited them for content but I have not complied the 3 lists into one yet. And today is not the day for that.
