Ok I'm going to post a word, and what ever that word finishes with the next person to post must post a word starting with the last letter of the previous post EASY so if I post MAILTO the flow would go like this OBJECT, TAG.......... Oh and each reply must be technical in some way a tag a term or a name.

I have a suggestion, how about if we include the definition of the word as well to make this thread somewhat educational? For instance:

I answer the previous post with Yottabyte -- A yottabyte is a measure of theoretical storage capacity and is 2 to the 80th power bytes or, in decimal, approximately a thousand zettabytes, a trillion terabytes, or a million trillion megabytes (written out in decimal, a yottabyte looks like this: 1,208,925,819,614,629,174,706,176)

Let me know what you think of this idea...

I think you missed the technical part of it. A suitable response could be, say, electronic:

of or relating to electronics; concerned with or using devices that operate on principles governing the behavior of electrons; "electronic devices"

See? Now you'd add a technical term that began with a "C".

Technician


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

For a definition of the Technician profession, see wiktionary:Technician.

Ladee

Technicians can be found working in a variety of fields, and they usually have a job title with the designation 'technician' following the particular category of work. Thus a 'stage technician' is a worker who supports putting on a play, while a 'medical technician' is an employee who provides technical support in the medical industry.

Hey Alex, didn't expect to see you here :)

I could make this hard by using C++: an object-oriented programming language that is viewed by many as the best language for creating large-scale applications.

But I won't.

How about COBOL: Common Business Oriented Language, the first widely-used high-level programming language for business applications.

(Wups ... might've been nice if I'd actually *read* the post prior to mine!! Sorry! Okay. Responding to COBOL) ...

Language (as in programming)

A programming language or computer language is a standardized communication technique for expressing instructions to a computer. It is a set of syntactic and semantic rules used to define computer programs. A language enables a programmer to precisely specify what data a computer will act upon, how these data will be stored/transmitted, and precisely what actions to take under various circumstances.

Gibibyte: a unit of information or computer storage; abbreviated GiB.

1 gibibyte = 1,073,741,824 bytes

The gibibyte is closely related to the gigabyte, which can either be a synonym for gibibyte, or refer to 1,000,000,000 bytes, depending on context.

ENIAC

the prototype from which most other modern computers evolved. It embodied almost all the components and concepts of today's high- speed, electronic digital computers. Its designers conceived what has now become standard circuitry such as the gate (logical "and" element), buffer (logical "or" element) and used a modified Eccles-Jordan flip-flop as a logical, high-speed storage-and-control device. The machine's counters and accumulators, with more sophisticated innovations, were made up of combinations of these basic elements.

ENIAC could discriminate the sign of a number, compare quantities for equality, add, subtract, multiply, divide, and extract square roots. ENIAC stored a maximum of twenty 10-digit decimal numbers. Its accumulators combined the functions of an adding machine and storage unit. No central memory unit existed, per se. Storage was localized within the functioning units of the computer.

Phishing -- The act of attempting to fraudulently acquire, through deception, sensitive personal information, such as passwords and credit card details, by masquerading in an official-looking email, IM, etc. as someone trustworthy with a real need for such information.

The term was coined in the mid 1990's by crackers attempting to steal AOL accounts. An attacker would pose as an AOL staff member and send an instant message to a potential victim. The message would ask the victim to reveal his or her password, for instance, to "verify your account" or to "confirm billing information." Once the victim gave over the password, the attacker could access the victim's account and use it for criminal purposes.

Today, online criminals put phishing to more directly profitable uses. Popular targets are users of online banking services, and auction sites such as eBay.
