I know a few of them but not all and I don't plan to learn and I hope no one does start using them all the time or I will have to post a copy of it beside my computer so I can translate. I have enough to try to take in to my feeble brain as it is now, just trying to keep up with all the new technology, I may go into brain overload.:huh: :dry: :S :silly: :unsure: :ohmy:

I do use a good deal of them, since i'm a gamer and quicker typing is typically a life saver in some games.


my most typically used are:


atm = at the moment

nm = never mind

afk = away from keyboard

g2g = got to go


I'm sure there are more but i can't think of um off the top of my head they just kinda come out
