Is there a website that coherently gives definitions of computer terminology.?

I am looking for indepth material down to programmer level, rather than the usual superficial listing.

Thank you.
I require a list(rather than "search") of the definitions of the inner workings of a computer, that are used by experts. predominantly in Security.

This to be used as "Aide Memoire".

Maxpapa.

you must realize that things change quickly and new words a coined every day ... you will most likely have to search and then create your own memory aid. i had to search to find the definition for that one :thumbsup:

that being said, how about this one http://www.computerhope.com/vdef.htm

Appreciate your advice :thumbsup:

I suspect that I will have to compile my own list after all.

Yes Computerhope is a helpful site and that list is a good starting point.
