More Obscure References Than A Second-Tier Gaming Convention

Ladies and gentlemen, the IBM Jargon and General Computing Dictionary circa 1990.

You can bet your bottom dollar that I’m going to bring some of that slang back. By myself if I have to, but I bet some of you will join me.

I wish I was reading stuff like that on the computer networks in 1990. Instead, I was busy reading the MJ-12 cover-up in raw text files. Just think, if I had wasted my time on the former instead of the latter, I coulda made something of my life.

Thanks be to Gimlet for the pointer.

    I haven’t read the whole thing through, but, so far, my favorite term has been “banana” for “parenthesis.”
