Acronyms are listed in the most recent editions of well-known dictionaries, like Oxford or Collins
I have an OED (second edition, 2003) which has an appendix "English in Electronic Communications", and a Collins Dictionary & Thesaurus (third edition, 2003) which has a "Language in action" chapter at the end, including acronyms used in text messaging. So... I've found out what FOTFLOL means: falling on the floor, laughing out loud
And, of course, you can easily find them on the Internet.
