For those of us who have mislaid their copies of the glossary file? :o)
140k isn't a problem for me.  It's not likely to push me over my quota.
Being able to rack up 155Mbit sort of places quota above connection speed
on my list of worries :)

Yay!  We invented a word!

As discussed today, "gwaredu" seems to be the word of choice for trashing

my fault for putting dim in the first place (Note to self: Translating at
9am is not good for me)

If I'd have spotted this one, I'd have suggested towing the line. Should
other languages translate it, then follow suit.  Should they leave it as
GUI, then leave it.

Bitmap went to didfap, so an analogous translation for "pixel" would be
your starter.

Gwrthdrawiad implies collision of the sort that physicists on ideal
frictionless planes keep talking about.  Regret to announce that "crasio"
was the weapon of choice at our school.
