Good listing RW! I have been around for quite awhile and knew what most stood for. Three I didn't know until just recently were JBT (about 2 weeks ago), CONUS (earlier today), and IANAL (I guess I was misreading this one to be IMANAL). Anyway, Thanks for posting! I am sure this will help alot of forum newcomers.
