I'm coming out of lurk mode for a spot of fun. I'm still recouperating
from the July 4th Independence Day holiday, and can't quite get into

This email is for all Tech-whirlers who enjoy having fun with the
English language (British & American).

www.whatis.com has "ohnosecond" as a highlighted Cyberterm. Here is
whatis's definition:

"An ohnosecond is that very short moment in time during which you
realize that you have pressed the wrong key and deleted hours, days, or
weeks of work."

www.whatis.com provides a link to two Web sites which reference
"ohonosecond" and other terms. The URLs are:

Rev. Robert H. Tucker:

There you will find the definitions for blamestorming, irritainment,
and beepilepsy.

John E. Jones, Ph.D., Organizational Universe Systems.

Dr. Jones's site provides a list of several terms, from A to Z. Those
Tech-whirlers who speak English as their second language may especially
appreciate his defintions.

Thank you for indulging me in a bit of English language fun!
