1. I think most people now don't know what it means
You heard it a lot in the DOS days, and maybe through Windows 3.1, but...

I've used it a few times in the last few years and gotten "Huh?" in response every time.

3. Yeah, I shoulda said that
I imagine it's different in the Geek Community. :silly:

Thing is, we were all a bit geeky in the DOS days. We had to be.
