Is there a list of Common acronyms?

Hey everyone since I am still somewhat new to the PSD (see, there is one of them that I know) scene I read a lot of abbreviations/acronyms that I don't know what they mean.

Is there a list somewhere that can help newbies like myself understand the lingo better? Just in two threads I saw all these and know what 1 of them mean.

CPS
AFE
SCT
ITP'S
FAAS
AD
RR
EGR (I know that one)
XCAL
ATS
FTVB

The list goes on and on...
