What’s in a name?

By | March 10, 2008

If you’ve never watched Fox’s TV series ’24’, the name of this blog will mean little to you.  On the other hand if you have watched the series you will recognise that the term “open a socket” is CTU’s panacea for all ills.  Will Jack escape the building surrounded by bad guys?  Sure, all he has to do is get Chloe/Michelle/Tony to “open a socket” and download the building’s blueprints to his PDA.  It happens in a matter of seconds.

Now why doesn’t my PDA do that?

    Is there a name for “tekky” words used on TV that make no sense? I loved the episode where there was one mongo firewall protecting all of the national networks in the U.S. 🙂
