<< Where did the following terms come from?
 -Byte (named after nybble, or vice-versa?)
 -Mainframe (Why not it a computer?)
 -DB (as in DB-15, 25) I've also heard them called D-sub xx)
 -Mouse >>

well, i'm sure we've all heard of how the story of how the dongle got it's
name. at least the version i heard is that the "thing" was created by a
character called Don Gall, and the name came forth from that. Sometimes i'll
tell the story at work, and have almost gotten several people to believe it.
