Is anyone else not familiar with the abbrieviations?
« on: June 30, 2016, 11:17:12 am »
I am perplexed as I am not able to understand a lot of what is talked about in the HepC Forums because I need a legend to teach me all the "code speak" here. Some of it is obvious but a lot of it is not. Is there a place that I can go to read what the slang and abbreviations mean?
