Looking for a site

Hello all,
Newbie here but have been perusing for awhile. Came across the web-site while doing some research for a risk management class I was taking for my MBA. Yesterday I was reading some posts and saw a link for an acronym glossary. I was looking for it today so that I can add it to my favorites here at work and I cannot find it. Could someone point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.
