What are your favorite terms for the 'idiots' in the computer world?
Mine are:
PEBKAC = Problem exists between keyboard and chair
ID10T Error
ESO Problem (Equipment Smarter than Operator)
Layer 8 Issue

I prefer the PEBKAC term, as people don't know what you're talking about unless they know. Which means they're usually IT-related people anyway.

Never heard the "ESO problem" term though. Gonna start using that.

Have this on a shirt, it's pretty much my favorite one.
Giggle like a little girl every time I put it on.

What does the who girl command actually do?
I can't quite tell.
"who" or "w" usually returns the currently logged in users.
Excerpt form "man who":
NAME
who - show who is logged on

SYNOPSIS
who [OPTION]... [ FILE | ARG1 ARG2 ]

So I guess girl could be a file?
