How about having a list of terms commonly used on this forum, either as a sticky topic or in the wiki?
Not technical terms you get in lampworking books or tutorials, or general internet-forum-speak; I'm talking more about the glass-related acronyms and abbreviations which are less obvious to us newbies.
For example: I have now figured out that, when someone here discusses "striking their DH", they're probably not talking about a domestic dispute, but it may take a bit of time to guess what they mean the first time...

So, does DH actually mean Double Helix or Darling Husband?

But a superb idea.

As far as I can see, it means either, depending on the context! Cheesy

If you look up DH on this site, you'll see that it can also mean something the complete opposite of Dear Husband!   Grin

Yeah, I'm more used to these referring to the MI6 and a kind of Oxford degree respectively.

BOC worried me at first - on here it means Beads of Courage, but to me it means British Orchid Council!

BOC for me always meant British Oxygen Corporation as it was who I started work work in 1988.

I remember chatting with Sarah Downton many years ago on the very day that I bought my first kit from Martin, and she was the first person to tell me that it took lots of PPP.  Never a truer word ...  Cheesy
