Site Acronyms

I need a list of site acronyms that we use all the time. We are trying to utilize some software that we have that if an acronym is used any can run their mouse over the acronym and it will give the full explanation.

If someone types 'SAS' and a user mouses over it a box will appear saying 'Solid Axle Swap'


These will be filtered so no smart comments or remarks. We need good acronyms to help the site.

So lets list them out!
