In response to sporadic enquiry, and my still errant ignorance of same, what do they mean?

IIRC = If I Rememeber/Recall Correctly
IMHO = In My Humble Opinion
LMAO(ROFL) = Laughing My Ass Off (Rolling On The Floor Laughing)

are some of the regulars. But, in the interests of enlightenment and avoidance of sounding a real techno-newbie, what are others?

Could be one for Computer 'n Internet, instead, no doubt Esteemed Mods will judge.

Someone close to me hangs around in the fan fiction web sites (where people try to emulate their favorite authors), purely for the joy of the dreadfull grammar and plots.
A favourite comment is OMGWTFBBQ, meaning Oh My God What The F...etc.
