I believe the only phrase in computereese you may have inadvertently missed that was hijacked and misconstrued is "byte me". Originally it was a request for more information by those who originally worked with computers when they had to use punch cards.

Totally different from how it's used today.

Thanks for the definitions. I was born about 40 years too soon to be able to learn all that computer stuff.

Life is too short for negative drama & petty things.
So laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly!

The best things in life are unseen, that's why we close our eyes when
we kiss, sleep, & dream.

---------------------------------------

When a guy's printing on his printer began to grow faint, he called a local repair shop where a friendly man informed him that the printer probably needed only to be cleaned.

Because the store charged $50 for such cleanings, he told him he might be better off reading the printer's manual and trying the job himself.

Pleasantly surprised by his candor, he asked, "Does your boss know that you discourage business?"

"Actually, it's my boss's idea," the employee replied sheepishly. "We usually make more money on repairs if we let people try to fix things themselves first."

Diagnosis

A patient complained to his doctor, "I've been to three other doctors and none of them agreed with your diagnosis."

The doctor calmly replied, "Just wait until the autopsy, then you'll see that I was right."
