Translation needed for the computer illiterate?

Being quite new to the forum, I am a little confused by some of the abbreviations used on the forum! it seems to be similar to abbreviations used in text messaging, which I don't understand at all.
Here are a few that I've seen.

FWIW
Maybe someone could start a dictionary of these and other abbreviations used on the forum, to help us that are confused by it all.

Thanks to everyone for the info, it surely shed some light on my ignorance of text messaging. :lol: I added www.netlingo.com to my favorites, and will use it from now on whenever I run across a new abbreviation.
