The internet being the vast repository of (useless, often) knowledge, 
there undoubtedly is!

No harm in asking if a google search doesn't turn anything up, but I 
doubt you'll run into more than the basic few in such company as you 
find here. (I only know those basics, in point of fact.)

IIRC if i recall correctly
AFAIK as far as I know
HTH hope this helps (among others)
RTFM read the f**** manual (among others)

Many more than this and you sound like one of those "authors" who write 
whole books entirely consisting of collections of (surely fictitious) 
abbreviations you "commonly" find on the internet.

It would be hilarious if, once English is a dead language, such terms 
as these became standards in the same way we now have Latin e.g., i.e., 
cf., et al.
