I have searched for software to solve a particular problem without
knowing the right acronyms. Adding just a few words to explain iSCSI
could make the difference between finding and not finding the right
package. Something like "Interent protocol for networked storage", maybe
adding "meant for using remote hard disks as if they were local";
someone who actually knows this stuff can fix the words to be right.

(Similarly for the other acronyms and concepts.)
