      Dave: How did it go over at the DMV, are they interested?
      Larry: No good, their guy Tom says they don't "believe" in Open Source. Says they want us to do it in Silverlight.
      Steve: They're all a bunch of microserfs over there!

            404

            The lights are blinkenflashen but nobody’s home. This is usually applied to a vacant person who has no clue, with no clue that they have no clue. Named after a server response code issued when you try to visit a webpage that simply isn’t there.

            Did you see Tom's last tweet? He clearly thinks UX stands for Undeniable Expert. What a 404!

                    Emacs Pinky

                    Repetitive strain injury caused by constant use of one's "pinky finger" when using modifier keys in Emacs. This term has been adopted by developers using other editors or IDEs due to frequent use of quotes, ticks, braces, colon, semi-colon. etc. as they are dependent upon the use of the right hand pinky.

                    God I hate you PHP! Every day I have Emacs pinky because every line requires at least five keystrokes with my right hand's little finger.
