Online Computer Terms Dictionary - G


/gor'ets/ The unknown ur-noun, fill in your own meaning. Found especially on the Usenet newsgroup alt.gorets, which seems to be a running contest to redefine the word by implication in the funniest and most peculiar way, with the understanding that no definition is ever final. [A correspondent from the Former Soviet Union informs me that "gorets" is Russian for "mountain dweller" - ESR] Compare frink.
