comment What can we call those ladies?
Socialites is what my hometown newspaper calls them. Generally they're married to men whose fathers or grandfathers have their names on important buildings in town.

comment What's the English equivalent of “Drilling one's head”?
Having read only the title before reading the question, my first thought was along the lines of "trepanation"/"trephination". Never mind, nothing to see here, carry on!

comment Why is uploading termed 'uploading' and downloading termed 'downloading'?
To make things more confusing, the up/down direction is reversed when one is discussing transferring programs between a PC and a PLC. There, downloading is from PC to PLC, and uploading is from PLC to PC. See this forum discussion and this manual, for example.
