I guess part of the fun of forums is learning the code (abbreviations, etc.). I'm not sure if it is that I currently have too much time on my hands or just enjoy puzzles, but there are a few abbreviations that I can't figure out... Help appreciated.

F.O.T.
FoJ
I w/AS
K
KP
LSB
mg'11
RS
UT

Thanks. (esp. to Dorayme for the majority of the list)

I think Doyame will have to help with the more obscure abbreviations, but here are some of them:

FOT: Friend of Tom, a blue ultrasuede Small Organizer Pouch (OP) that was given to forum members about two summers ago
FoJ: limited-edition Fourth of July pouch that was I believe free with $25 order
mg'11: Mystery Gift 2011, another forum gift; this time, a Cork OP
LSB: Do you mean LCB? If so, Large Cafe Bag, and sibling to Medium and Small (MCB and SCB, respectively)
RS: I'm guessing this is Ruck's Sac, a now-defunct small backpack

If this list is from Dorayme, I'm guessing:

LSB = Little Swift Black (ballistic)
UT= utility tote
I w/AS= Imago with Absolute Strap
KP= Kindle Pouch?
Badger's correct about the rest....but what is the "K"??

Ah, the elusive Little Swift Black.

"K" really stumped me too. All I could come up with was "Kit" but then I was like, who abbreviates "Kit"? (I mean, it's fine if you do; I'm just saying.)

I think LSB might mean Large Shop Bag. Little Swift is usually LS.

Ah, terayon, you might be right! I'd have to see the colors listed. If "LSB" is listed in every color you are most definitely correct :)

And, yes, Badger, I think you're right on: K is for Kit! For those of us with, ahem, large TB collections to list (and yes, that most certainly includes me!), every little abbreviated letter helps :)
