All-elbows




Said of a TSR (terminate-and-stay-resident) mess-dos program, such as the N pop-up calendar and calculator utilities that circulate on BBS systems: unsociable.

Used to describe a program that rudely steals the resources that it needs without considering that other TSRs may also be resident.

One particularly common form of rudeness is lock-up due to programs fighting over the keyboard interrupt.
