Glossary

Morning all,

Just wanted to ask if anyone knows of a good glossary on the net?
I'm getting rather confused all the many, many acronyms. And considering I work in IT - thats quite a feat.

*Or* perhaps a glossary could be established here? (just a thought)

Cheers,
Lurch

You can also hover over acronyms here and the forum software will come up with something.

We also have a wiki set up to which you can add terms if they're not already listed: Main Page - The Pentax Wiki

Aight, how about I make it a little project (when I get time) to research and create a glossary on the wiki?
You want a new Glossary? Or is that what the dictionary was intended for?

PS; Can I suggest a link to the Wiki up on the main menu bar?

Do I dare mention a competitor name here? (I do have 4 analogue Pentax SLRs, 2 digital Pentax DSLRs and one Pentax digital compact).

But actually, I think Olympus has done a good job here:

Well, perhaps I can compile all these sources together.
I'll wait for Adams decision on where/what he wants
