I was thinking of the demarcation that CoS has and I put this in the MP3 section. On second thoughts it really belongs here:

This can be considered a quote

Here are lyrics for Sea Org, from me

Harken unto the wind
Hear the tale it has to tell
Do not go near the tide of love
Which will stifle
And overwhelm
For when the sea
Dost once more ebb
A pebble
Will mark your passing
For only the fool
Or self, -deceiving
Believes in love
Ah folly (s)he
Who treads Lord Agapé's path
When Eros
Holds so much more pleasure
For (s)he shall inherit
The grapes of wrath
When HE dismisses them
For his liesure.

Thought you guys might like this.
It is for people who get misunderstood words when talking to a geek, enjoy:

Geek Jargon

To be exploited and oppressed by your boss. Derived from the experiences of Dilbert, the geek-in-hell comic strip character. "I've been dilberted again. The old man revised the specs for the fourth time this week."

Link Rot
The process by which links on a web page became as obsolete as the sites they're connected to change location or die.

Chip Jewelry
A euphamism for old computers destined to be scrapped or turned into decorative ornaments. "I paid three grand for that Mac SE, and now it's nothing but chip jewelry."

A badly written or profoundly useless Java applet. "I just wasted 30 minutes downloading this stinkin' crapplet!"

A new hire who doesn't need any training. "The new guy, John, is great. He's totally plug-and-play."

World Wide Wait
The real meaning of WWW.

A hard-core CGI script programmer with all the social skills and charisma of a plastic action figure.

Dorito Syndrome
Feelings of emptiness and dissatisfaction triggered by addictive substances that lack nutritional content. "I just spent six hours surfing the Web, and now I've got a bad case of Dorito Syndrome."

Under Mouse Arrest
Getting busted for violating an online service's rule of conduct. "Sorry I couldn't get back to you. AOL put me under mouse arrest."

Corporate-speak for sleeping with your eyes open. A popular pastime at conferences and early-morning meetings. "Didn't he notice that half the room was glazing by the second session?"

Someone who's clueless. From the World Wide Web message "404, URL Not Found," meaning that the document you've tried to access can't be located. "Don't bother asking him...he's 404, man."

Dead Tree Edition
The paper version of a publication available in both paper and electronic forms, as in: "The dead tree edition of the San Francisco Chronicle..."

Scanning the net, databases, print media, or research papers looking for the mention of your name.

Graybar Land
The place you go while you're staring at a computer that's processing something very slowly (while you watch the gray bar creep across the screen). "I was in graybar land for what seemed like hours, thanks to that CAD rendering."

Open-Collar Workers
People who work at home or telecommute.

Squirt The Bird
To transmit a signal up to a satellite. "Crew and talent are ready...what time do we squirt the bird?"

Brain Fart
A by-product of a bloated mind producing information effortlessly. A burst of useful information. "I know you're busy on the Microsoft story, but can you give us a brain fart on the Mitnik bust?" Variation of old hacker slang that had more negative connotations.

Cobweb Site
A World Wide Web Site that hasn't been updated for a long time. A dead web page.

It's a Feature
From the adage "It's not a bug, it's a feature." Used sarcastically to describe an unpleasant experience that you wish to gloss over.

Keyboard Plaque
The disgusting buildup of dirt and crud found on computer keyboards. "Are there any other terminals I can use? This one has a bad case of keyboard plaque."

Career-Limiting Move (CLM)
Used among microserfs to describe an ill-advised activity. Trashing your boss while he or she is within earshot is a serious CLM.

Elvis Year
The peak year of something's popularity. "Barney the dinosaur's Elvis year was 1993."

Alpha Geek
The most knowledgable, technically proficient person in an office or work group. "Ask Larry, he's the alpha geek around here."

The rarified organizational layers beginning just above the rack and file. Decisions that fall from the adminisphere are often profoundly inappropriate or irrelevant to the problems they were designed to solve.

People who are taking training classes just to get a vacation from their jobs. "We had about three serious students in the class; the rest were tourists."

Blowing Your Buffer
Losing one's train of thought. Occurs when the person you are speaking with won't let you get a word in edgewise or has just said something so astonishing that your train gets derailed. "Damn, I just blew my buffer!"

Gray Matter
Older, experienced business people hired by young entrepreneurial firms looking to appear more reputable and established.

To take note of a person for future reference (a metaphor borrowed from web browsers). "I bookmarked him after seeing his cool demo at Siggraph."

Nickname for AOL's less-than-full-featured Web browser.

The brief siezure people sometimes suffer when their beepers go off, especially in vibrator mode. Characterized by physical spasms, goofy facial expressions, and stopping speech in mid-sentence.

Salmon Day
The experience of spending an entire day swimming upstream only to get screwed in the end.

And here are some computer acronyms and what they really mean:


People Can't Memorize Computer Industry Acronyms

It Still Does Nothing

Arrogance Produces Profit-Losing Entity

System Can't See It

Defective Operating System

Bill's Attempt to Seize Industry Control

I Blame Microsoft

Do Expect Cuts

Consumer Device, Rendered Obsolete in Months

Obsolete Soon, Too.

World Wide Wait

Most Applications Crash; If Not, The Operating System Hangs

Produces Erroneous Numbers Through Incorrect Understanding of Mathematics

Completely Obsolete Business Oriented Language

A Merely Insignificant Game Addiction

Lots of Infuriating & Silly Parenthesis

Meaningless Indication of Processor Speed

Will Install Needless Data On Whole System

Garbage In Rubbish Out

Most Intelligent Customers Realize Our Software Only Fools Teenagers

"The most wonderful thing of all is that the distinguished Lutheran and Calvinist theologians who belong to this order really believe that they see in it the true and genuine sense of Christian religion. Oh mortal man, is there anything you cannot be made to believe?"

- Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Order of the Illuminati, 1776.

by the cold and religious we were taken in hand
shown how to feel good and told to feel bad
tongue tied and terrified we learned how to pray
now our feelings run deep and cold as the clay

I don't believe in myself because I am an atheist.

It's a circular, never ending argument. Like when Spock said, "Everything I say is a lie."

And the computer couldn't handle it, because if the statement is true, then that statement would be false. And if that statement is false than he is telling the truth and they cancel eachother out.
