Random from Land of Oz

Support other awesome Oz lovers! :ohnoes:

EDIT: It turned out that English survey wouldn't hurt either, so here we go.

I'm making a small research for school about computer slang, and I need some statistics. I'm not talking about chat speak, abbreviations or gaming vocabulary, I mean tech words that mostly have official terms. Like, people prefer to call "administrator" an "admin" or "a computer and IT expert" a "geek". I know nothing about the English side of that, so I have no idea if these themes have the same variety of words as they do in Russian, sorry.

You can help me by telling how you call these things (or things related to them) in daily use, as many words as you can name:

- User (inexpirienced user)

- Computer (parts of computer)

- Hard drive

- Disks, diskettes(?)

- Microsoft Windows

- Apple (Macintosh)

- E-mail (any other messages?)

- Programming (program errors)

- Viruses

 ...Aaaand maybe any other words on topics I didn't mention, because. Statistics. I must be prepared.

(Example: crapplet - poorly written computer application; snail mail - normal mail service; lag - slow Internet speeds)

And don't forget to tell for how many years you've been using a computer. Send a note, write here, or to Thanks a lot *v*


Объявляю маленький лингвистический опрос!

Суть такова: я сейчас делаю доклад по компьютерному сленгу, и мне нужна небольшая статистика. Вы мне очень поможете, если улучите минутку и перечислите как можно больше употребляемых вами в обиходе синонимов следующих слов (или на ту же тему):


- Пользователь (неопытный пользователь)

- Компьютер

- Материнская плата

- Оперативная память

- Жесткий диск

- Оптический диск (CD, DVD)

- Дискета

- Microsoft Windows

- Apple (Macintosh)

- Электронная почта (сообщение в электронной почте)

- Ошибка программы

- Вирусы


(Например: струйный принтер – струйник, сохранить – засейвить, Firefox - Огнелис, ну вы поняли)

И укажите, сколько лет пользуетесь компьютером. Можно отвечать в комментариях, можно кинуть ноут, можно писать на Спасибки *v*

My old account was :iconxamag-chan:. Nice to see you again, DA!

There won't be any Homestuck arts on this account! I have Tumblr for this:

Personal blog:

Русский бложик для пустой болтовни, скетчей и непереводимых работ:

Program: PaintTool SAI (pen tool, water brush and binary tool for pixel art). Sometimes I use Ulead GIF Animator or Macromedia Flash for animation

Oh my. I just read your Oz comic, and I *squee*'d at every page; It's awesome and adorable! Adorawesome? Awesomable? Either way, It's good! and your other artworks are delightful too. Ma'am, you have an avid follower now :)

So first of all I think your style of drawing is really interesting. While reading your web-comic something about the way it looks kind of drew me in while the story and humor got me hooked but im also kind of wondering, was it difficult to start your own web-comic? I am just really curious because in the future I also intend to make one of my own. However young me got drawn into cartoons -__- so I started drawing pretty late in life and wow I am going on about this much more than I thought I would, so uh im just going to stop right here.
