"Ascertain the meaning before consulting this dictionary," warns the author of this collection of deliberately satirical misdefinitions. New computer cultures and their jargons have burgeoned since this book's progenitor, The Devil's DP Dictionary, was published in 1981. This updated version of Stan Kelly-Bootle's romp through the data processing "laxicon" is a response to the "Unix pandemic" that has swept academia and government, to the endlessly hyped panaceas offered to the MIS, and to the PC explosion that has brought computer terminology to a "hugely bewildered, lay audience." The original dictionary, an urbane and witty pastiche of Ambrose Bierce's famous work, parried chiefly the mainframe and mini-folklore of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. This long-awaited revision adds over 550 new entries and enhances many of the original definitions. Key targets are "a host of new follies crying out for cynical lexicography [including] the GUI-Phooey iconoclasts, object orienteering, and the piping of BLObs down the Clinton-Gore InfoPike." ack n. [Origin: back-formed negation of nak.] A signal indicating that the error-detection circuits have failed. computer science n. [Origin: possibly Prof. P. B. Fellgett's rhetorical question, "Is computer science?"] A study akin to numerology and astrology, but lacking the precision of the former and the success of the latter. multimedia n. An application attacking all five senses of the user--sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch--but especially, smell.

I leave a comment whenever I especially enjoy a post on a site or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation. Usually it is caused by
the passion displayed in the article I browsed. And on this article besisheckstab - The Computer Contradictionary download book.
I was excited enough to post a commenta response :-) I
actually do have a few questions for you if it's allright.
Is it simply me or do a few of these responses come across like
they are left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at other sites, I'd like to follow anything
new you have to post. Would you list all of all your community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook
page or twitter feed?
