    Default SWAMBO and other acronyms used on this site

    Hi all.

    I've by now figured out that SWAMBO is your wife - but where does it come from? There is also a couple of other accronyms on this site that I am not sure about such as IMHO, M2CW etc.

    Could somebody please explain to me, and maybe other new users, what all these stand for?
