2. static IP address/dynamic IP address:
A static IP address is a number (in the form of a dotted quad) that is assigned to a computer by an Internet service provider (ISP) to be its permanent address on the Internet. When the Internet was first conceived, the architects didn't foresee the need for an unlimited number of IP addresses. Consequently, there are not enough IP numbers to go around. To solve this problem, temporary (dynamic) IP addresses are sometimes assigned.
3. chat and text messaging abbreviations:

5. Mathematical Symbols:

7. kilo, mega, giga, tera, peta and all that:
A perennial favorite, this table provides comparisons of quantifications of storage volume and other things. How big is an exabyte, for example? As a reader recently commented, an exabyte could store 50,000 years worth of high-quality video content. Kilo, mega, giga, tera, and peta are among the list of prefixes that are used to denote the quantity of something, such as, in computing and telecommunications, a byte or a bit.

8. proxy server:
A proxy server intermediates between a workstation and the Internet to improve security, administrative control and caching service. A proxy server is associated with a gateway server that separates the enterprise network from the outside network and a firewall server that protects the enterprise network from outside intrusion.
