oops! you already had DPS

This from one of Terry's posts:
"Wingspan Conversion factor--ratio of wingspan to height." - can't figure whether it's wingspan over height or height over wingspan though :(

I know this would be an expansion of your list into a dictionary but ... in the Garmin literature they define a stroke as being counted "every time the watch arm completes a full cycle". This seems to be half that used in other definitions where a stroke is defined as a cycle of either arm. Is there any way to make it clear which definition is being used (at least here)?

Just created a new acronyme (for you ;-) ). You may do it by yourself, so it would pop up to the top soon.

There are some question marks, can you remove them?

Best regards,
Werner

I think you're doing a great job Werner. Sadly though I'd love to help I can't help :( You're the only person who can edit your posts (as this isn't a wiki).

p.s I can't see the question marks. Looks good to me :) Great stuff.

Hunted for this thread today looking for a definition of CSS (normally Critical Swim Speed I think though combat swimming sounds fun!), so thanks Werner for putting the glossary together. I just wish Terry would make it a sticky thread! :)

While I'm here I thought I'd extract the entries you have question marks against and add some input fwiw

I think the question marks for FB and OR could be got rid of. The s2bf entry could be deleted imo.
NLP often means Neuro Linguistic Programming (a very commercially successful bit of scientific mumbo jumbo)
OCD can refer to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
OMG and OWS I have no alternative to the ones you give, but I wouldn't encourage the use of OWS so I'd delete it! :D
ROI often means Return on Investment (I've a bad feeling I'm responsible for introducing some of these).

Thanks again
