    2003 AE as in Anniversary Edition.

    And 2004 CE is the Commemorative Edition. (1996 CE is a Collector Edition)

    The acroynm listing is good, but who can we get to put them all in one list and add to it as new items are added.

    Example Link to acroynms

    One listing

    A
    B
    C
    D
    .
    .
    .

    Otherwise (Is elsewise a word? If not? I vote we make it a word. It sounds good, e.g elsewise I will be doing this). one will have to search through all listings to maybe find the acornym they are looking for.

    DILLIGAF was one of my embarrassing moments. At an IRL race at Charlotte speedway I was walking through the vendor's area. These (for lack of a better word) naive people were buying baseball caps. One of the ladies said excuse me sir, what does DILLIGAF mean. One of the younger guy's wives started giggling.The other blushed and both husbands were grinning.
    So I said it means Do I Look Like I give a "you know." She said No, I don't know. Now everyone was smiling.. So I tried again and none of them got it. So I finally said it means Do I Look Like I give a puck. She said puck, then oh and went beet red That hat went back on the rack faster than you'd believe.

    Worse was until the race started I had to put up with how my face was redder than theirs.
