This document is a collection of slang terms used by various subcultures of computer hackers. Though some
technical material is included for background and flavor, it is not a technical dictionary; what we describe here
is the language hackers use among themselves for fun, social communication, and technical debate.

Information about Project GutenbergInformation prepared by the Project Gutenberg legal advisorThis Is The Project Gutenberg Etext of The Hackers' Dictionary. *****This file should be named jargn10.txtor jargn10.zip******Corrected EDITIONS of our etexts get a new NUMBER, jargn11.txt. VERSIONS based on separate sourcesget new LETTER, jargn10a.txt.This choice was made by popular demand for this date, due to the massive influx of new students and a newpaper publication. Our normal choice would be not to release two reference texts in the same month other thanfor this demand, which appears to be in an extreme position at the moment as we are also receiving requestsfor zip and area code directories.Another request we have received is to put the introductory part of reference works at the end, so that thereference work itself begins with the main body of the work itself, after the shortest possible introduction as tohow to use it so the instruction set does not have to be gone past to get to the body each time. You are invitedto send your suggestions on this. If we get enough, we will re-release this file, with the lengthydocumentations at the end of the file contained herein.Project Gutenberg is working on creating a simple, childlike (if you will) network guide, "A Child's Garden of the Internet." If you have any suggestions for inclusions, and/or could take a few minutes to write a "TenMinute Tutorial" on any subject you feel worthwhile. These should be directed at the absolute novices of thenetworks, and should presume little or no previous knowledge (we are even including how to control-c in eachtutorial, as the tutorials are each supposed to be a stand alone event taking the nominal "Ten Minutes" toexpose the novices to a particular part of the networks, or to a particular resource. . .even if that is a resourcedirected at other resources, such as Gopher, Prospero and others. This could be an easy way to get your namein print in both etext and paper publishing, as we had hardly announced A Child's Garden before we wereapproached for paper publishing.

(one page)We produce about one million dollars for each hour we work. One hundred hours is a conservative estimatefor how long it we take to get any etext selected, entered, proofread, edited, copyright searched and analyzed,the copyright letters written, etc. This projected audience is one hundred million readers. If our value per textis nominally estimated at one dollar, then we produce a million dollars per hour; next year we will have to dofour text files per month, thus upping our productivity to two million/hr. The Goal of Project Gutenberg is toGive Away One Trillion Etext Files by the December 31, 2001. [10,000 x 100,000,000=Trillion] This is tenthousand titles each to one hundred million readers.
We need your donations more than ever!
All donations should be made to "Project Gutenberg/IBC", and are tax deductible to the extent allowable bylaw ("IBC" is Illinois Benedictine College). (Subscriptions to our paper newsletter go to IBC, too)Send to:David Turner, Project Gutenberg Illinois Benedictine College 5700 College Road Lisle, IL 60532-0900All communication to Project Gutenberg should be carried out via Illinois Benedictine College unless viaemail. This is for help in keeping me from being swept under by paper mail as follows:1. Too many people say they are including SASLE's and aren't.2. Paper communication just takes too long when compared to the thousands of lines of email I receive everyday. Even then, I can't communicate with people who take too long to respond as I just can't keep their trainsof thought alive for those extended periods of time. Even quick responses should reply with the text of themessages they are answering (reply text option in RiceMail). This is more difficult with paper.3. People request disks without specifying which kind of disks, it can be very difficult to read an Apple disk on an IBM. I have also received too many disks that cannot be formatted.My apologies.We would strongly prefer to send you this information by email (Internet, Bitnet, Compuserve, ATTMAIL orMCImail). Email requests to:Internet: hart@vmd.cso.uiuc.edu Bitnet: hart@uiucvmd or hart@uiucvmd.bitnet Compuserve:>internet:hart@vmd.cso.uiuc.edu Attmail: internet!vmd.cso.uiuc.edu!HART MCImail: ADDRESS TYPE:MCI / EMS: INTERNET / MBX: hart@vmd.cso.uiuc.edu ****** If you have an FTP program (or emulator),please:FTP directly to the Project Gutenberg archives:
