Terminak




/ter'mi-nak`/ [Caltech, ca. 1979] Any malfunctioning computer terminal.

A common failure mode of Lear-Siegler ADM 3a terminals caused the "L" key to produce the "K" code instead; complaints about this tended to look like "Terminak #3 has a bad keyboard.

Pkease fix."

See AIDX, Nominal Semidestructor, Open DeathTrap, ScumOS, sun-stools, Telerat, HP-SUX.
