X-WINDOWS

X.25

Another one of those computer standards abbreviations that mean almost nothing to almost everybody, except those who either (a) have professional interest in such things which sees them using such abbreviations regularly or (b) are, not to put too finer point on it, nerds.

"Yes well, I re-configured the X.25, but somehow the flangulator's got out of sync with the compression, and I don't think the Smikilkoff devices will re-align with the 10-base-T. Still, you've got to laugh, haven't you!"


XCOPY
