How about a little terms definitions? (newbie Q?)

Hey all,

I know this is a stupid suggestion, but what about a thread titled TERMS? I have a hard time following sometimes. I have been a lurker for a bit,and just joined up. I want to do all the standard maint. and want to do a few things to the rig.

It would be nice for a mod, or member to add a terms log for different terms, it would be super nice to be able to have tech links for tips too?

Just throwing this out there. We are not all techs, or full time pullers whom know it all.

New guy,so please dont shoot me dead too soon.

Bill

exactly I have a hard time following,and spend too much wasted time looking up these terms and then trying to follow along.

I hate showing my ignorance, but a little pic, and answers to what these acronyms are would be great for the new guys how only know little.
