Favorite Quickies and Acronyms
Ok, there are a ton of these, and they've been shared between geeks since before it was called 'the Internet' in Vice-President Gore's feeble imagination. But I'd like to get a comprehensive list of them, so let's start here!
PEBKAC: (Problem Exists Between Keyboard and Chair)
I D 10 T: (This is a spoken joke. You say "eye dee ten tee", but when you write it out "ID10T" it obviously becomes 'idiot'.)
STFW: Search The F$cking Web
RTFM: Read The F$cking Manual (Man page, for us UNIX purists)

Stupid users breaking networking, erasing things
Came up with this one in response to this lady who kept on erasing AOL from her computer, then wondered why she couldnt "click that little connect thing like I do at the office". It happened a good 3 times before it sunk in. This was back in HS though.
