Now refers to v1.0.3, not v1.0.4 of Jargon.txt. Also included the jargon.txt definition.

comment What is a word for someone who intentionally ignores other people a lot?
+1 for deaf. As someone who finds it difficult to hear when there is a lot of background noise, I expect I have been misunderstood as aloof or snobbish or simply rude in the past. In reality, I just haven't heard what's been said (or I've misunderstood what's been said), so I've either responded with an apparently tangential or unconnected reply, or failed to respond.

If the fish had guns, they'd get all their ducks in a row and save on ammo.

comment Pronouncing x in the name of a CD product
@Hellion I'm a geek too, and I've heard it called speed and times in equal measure and hardly ever ecks. shrugs I'd probably opt for speed, although in your example: 48 speed CD-ROM, 2 times compression.
