"Laughing Out Loud."

And just to give this post a bit more content...if you run across an
acronym you don't understand, especially if it is computer related or
significant in online conversation (this one is the latter), use it as
the keyword of a search at Yahoo or whatever other search engine you
prefer. There are large online dictionaries of new terms, at least one
of which is likely to be referenced in the results; you can look up the
definition and get right back to whatever else you were doing.
