Some of these are old old old (alpha geek, beepilepsy, crapplet....). I mean, come on, who still downloads Java applets? :) But most of them I've never heard before. I like to "ohnosecond", that brief amount of time between doing something and realizing that it was a very wrong thing to do.

In a meeting I once suggested the art of network operations through "prairie dogging." We needed to shut down one of our main development servers and did not have a plan for how to make sure people were off of it. "Just turn it off," I said, "And watch the cube farm to see which heads pop up." The head of operations was not amused.
