comment What is the optional plural form of a word that ends in “‑y”?
@jwpat7 -1: He's obviously using C-like syntax, and you know what he meant: there's no excuse for not having your program automatically pluralize trivial English nouns.

comment What is the difference between “it's up to you” and “it's down to you”?
@ArtemIce In that example, you are "responsible" for choosing what to eat. "There are 30 servers down, and it's up to you to fix them" is also a valid use of the phrase. This answer is excellent.

comment Word that means “outdated name”
-1 As @Ben notes, an anachronism is something in the wrong time period (like everything in the Flinstones) which is not what the OP is describing.

comment A word for a symbol which has outlived its origin
Good word; but it seems to be the opposite of what OP is looking for. Skeuomorphs are used to make the new seem familiar by incorporating familiar, but non-functional design. OP refers to symbols whose appearance is no longer familiar, but whose meanings are retained.

comment Is there a word for a non-geek?
+1 This is the right answer; a layman can refer to anyone unskilled; a luddite is specifically a non-geek.

Unfreeze is perfect. It's short, works in both cases, and is decipherable even with little context. Post this as an answer, so I can accept it.
