Comprehensive online Geek acronym reference?

A few threads down there is a discussion of HTA technology and XP.  Seems like there is no way to stay on top of the latest buzzwords and acronyms, particularly if you are working in a subset of a mature technology and don't get out much (in a binary kind of way).

Question:  is there a _comprehensive_ online research of all known Geek software/hardware acronyms (ASP, SOAP, HTA, etc, etc) that offers reasonable definitions _and_ links to more technical & in-depth material?

I bet we could all use this at least once.  Primo new leads to the best suggestion.  I'm talking about the Glengarry leads here - the Gold Leads.

Not what you are looking for, but the jargon file at http://www.jargon.org is informative and amusing ;) Not great for the latest and greatest acronyms, but it is still a beautiful compendium.
