    My personal favourite is PEBKAC - Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair

    I used to work in IT Support a lot, and we saw instances of PEBKAC on an almost daily basis.

    Some of these posts are burning my eyes out PDQ (pretty damn quick). That gets emailed a hell of a lot to my transport department.

    FUBAR actually came out of WWII, and it's F'ed up beyond all repair, at least that's what my old ex-paratrooper daddy told me. The other good one that came out of WWII was SNAFU--situation normal all f'ed up.

    I had to chuckle when doing the old 70-216 study and trying to get my head around the differences between L2TP and PPTP, which uses IPSec and which uses MPPE, which has an AH and so on. Here is a small snippet for your enjoyment...

    PPTP uses UDP to carry the data packets and TCP to carry the command control packets. L2TP
    does not distinguish between packet types. All L2TP packets are UDP encapsulated.
    As a connection-oriented protocol TCP requires an acknowledgement packet to come back for
    each chunk of data it sends out. A packet’s TCP header is 12 bytes larger than a UDP Header.
    This results in degradation of throughput of PPTP as compared with L2TP that uses
    connectionless UDP.

    I always end up thinking of Danny Kaye in The Court Jester :biggrin

    Hawkins: They broke the chalice from the palace?
    Griselda: And replaced it with a flagon.
    Hawkins: A flagon...?
    Griselda: With the figure of a dragon.
    Hawkins: Flagon with a dragon.
    Griselda: Right.
    Hawkins: But did you put the pellet with the poison in the vessel with the pestle?
    Griselda: No!!! The pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon! The vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true!
    Hawkins: The pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon; the vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true.
    Griselda: Just remember that.

    So my vote goes to L2TP (layer 2 tunnelling protocol) and PPTP (point to point tunnelling protocol)
