Anymore? Before I type it all up together?

Wait a sec, is this even gonna be helpful? Would it possibly be a sticky? If not then I dont see the point. But i really find it helpful and I'm sure many others will too. So jude, or other moderators, would it be a sticky if i took the time to type it all up? What about everyone else? Do you guys think this would be a useful sticky?

What does IC mean when it's used in the for sale forums:

i.e IC: blah blah blah

Because it doesn't seem to mean interconnect.

We have far too many stickies as it is.
