Devil’s Dictionary for Geeks

Okay, I’m speechless at Greg Knauss’s homage to Ambrose Bierce :

web standards, noun : A large stick or cudgel, used by the slightly more anal-retentive to beat the slightly less anal-retentive.

flash mob, noun :An impromptu gathering, organized by means of electronic communication, of the unemployed.

command line, noun :The most efficient method available for accidentally deleting data.

schedule, noun : A fairy tale with a happy ending, told by the optimistic to the ignorant.
?I see the schedule says we ship next week ? good, good.?
