Need help with abbriviations(lingo)

I am still somewhat new to the computer world, or maybe jsut ignorant but I do not know what most of these abbreviations you guys use mean, such as (lol) I assume means lots of luck, or maybe laugh out loud, not sure. I dont know any of them, except maybye asap . Can someone post the description of the ones you guys use so I can have a clue. Thanks!!!

Go here: Acronyms and Shorthand . It's a pretty exhaustive listing, many of which I've never seen before myself, and I've been on the Internet since '85.

HTH.
