Jargon

A cow-orker of mine pointed me at this jargon collection from a company he used to work at. Even though it is local to a company and has a bunch of specifics (e.g., to “MarkG” and other personalities), it’s surprisingly universal, and I hurt a lot after laughing at some of the entries.

    Many moons ago I worked with a group of guys that used work for Sinclair before it all went bust (Timex TS1000 and friends for the US folks)

    On the network there was the shared “quotes.txt” from the earlier Sinclair days which I passed back many years later to a friend who stuck it up on usenet.

    I used to work at LaserMaster! It got its start as a company that took normal (HP) printers and plotters and then enhanced (kind of) them to make them more accurate and usable as pre-press proofs, and poster printers. Man the stories I could tell…

    Mandatory historical reference with which you might already be familiar, but not everyone will know about: The Jargon File, found at http://www.catb.org/jargon/. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jargon_File for a decent overview.
