View Full Version : 21st century/ computer terms needed ....

Hope that there are some creative thinkers here ..... :)

I need to find a computer or 21st century / techno word for something so that I can make the idea of it a lot more appealing and maybe even "fun" or "funny" ........ so that I might be more tempted to do it.

eg. I hate having to clean the piles of mess I leave around the computer ..... but I do it more often now that I call it a "defrag" .... eg. defrag the desk .....

Well, my physio has said that I have to do some stretching etc exercises - it seems that I spend too much time sitting down ;) But I have a very hard time making myself do it. Generally because I'm too tired ... but even just the idea of it turns me off.

Can anybody think of a way to describe exercises where you move your arms and legs to work your muscles, and also pull those long pieces of elastic ....

Are there any 21st century words that can be used to "describe" these types of exercises?

Thanks :)

(other examples ..... brain = CPU, body is the 'hard drive' ..... if anybody is feeling creative and wants to find words for 'walk', 'run', 'eating' etc feel free!)

Possibly the strangest request I have ever read...

Perhaps 're-sizing' might be apt.

Or, for 21st Century keywords, elastic is a pretty mean selling point on Amazons AWS EC2 service, from their blurb:

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers.

Amazon EC2ís simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with minimal friction. It provides you with complete control of your computing resources and lets you run on Amazonís proven computing environment.

The bold text is pretty much what you're trying to achieve :P

Um, like the elastic bands, they're called stretching exercises.
