I'm new to the board and really appreciate the wealth of knowledge being shared. I have to admit that there are times when I have a hard time understanding some of the discussions because I don't know what some of the abreviations mean. Can you help me out by telling me what some of them mean? Lets start with "MDS". How about "EVIC"? I know this is English 101 for many of you, but can you help me out? The list of acronyms is long, so please list the meanings of any that you can think of. It will help all of us who are new to the forum.
