Just found this board a few days ago, and I've been lurking ever since. Lots of good stuff here, and it sounds like many of the folks have the same mentality as me regarding retirement (not much emphasis on "Get Rich Quick" schemes). Anyway, I'm still relatively young (early 30's), and while I've managed to save up a nice amount in the time I've been working (roughly $100k), I'm not in a big rush to retire just yet. However, I like to plan ahead, especially when compound interest is involved.
So I'll probably just ask a few questions from time to time. I consider myself a novice when it comes to investing, so I still have a lot to learn.
One question: is there a link or a thread which explains the various acronyms? Most of them I can figure out, but I'm still puzzled about a few of them. I keep seeing "DH" and "DW" pop up. I've figured out the "Husband/Wife," but what's the "D"? Dear? Divorced? Dead? Dumb?
Oh, and about me: I'm a computer engineer living in Austin, TX; married, no kids.
