Actually, COMPNOR is the acronym for the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order, not the Committee for the Preservation of the New Order. The Official Site also erroneously refers to COMPNOR as the Coalition for the Preservation of the New Order.

Other notable abbreviations include DiploSer (Diplomatic Services), ExComm (External Communications), IntSec (Internal Security Bureau), IntOrg (Internal Organisation Bureau), ISB (Imperial Security Bureau), CorSec (Corellian Security Force), IDMR (Imperial Department of Military Research), SPIN (Senate Planetary Intelligence Network), KDY (Kuat Drive Yards), RSD (Rendili StarDrive), AI (Arakyd Industries), CEC (Corellian Engineering Corporation), SDS (Sienar Design Systems), SFS (Sienar Fleet Systems), SST (Santhe/Sienar Technologies), TaggeCo (The Tagge Company), CSA (Corporate Sector Authority), CIS (Confederacy of Independent Systems), TIE (twin ion engine), DMIBS (Deep-space Mobile Imperial Battle Station), AT-AT (All-Terrain Armoured Transport), AT-ST (All-Terrain Scout Transport), AT-PT (All-Terrain Personal Transport), MT-AT (Mountain-Terrain Armoured Transport), LAV (light assault vehicle), CAV (compact assault vehicle), IPV (Intersystem Patrol Vehicle), and NRI (New Republic Intelligence).

As soon as I can figure out how to do it, I'm going to stick this thread to the top... (if it's possible)...

And let's keep the references to non-SW sci fi (trek, b5, etc) to a minimum...
There is no problem to dificult for a signifigantly large enough quantity of C-4 to handle.

I don't know how this specific type of board works, but sticking topics might be a admin or owner option only.
