I know that all of you have done this one time or another. This time, I would like for it to be in a thread, and see how far it can go.

Using computer terms, define them using only 5 words. Then define them again in 5 words, but not related to computers. In your message, you can either do a different word, or one that has already been mentioned.

Ex:

RAM-Programs used immediately by computer
Ram-Dodge name brand of truck

Hard Drive-Storage medium for all computers
Hard drive-Driving vehicle without any suspension

I wanna try this!!

Mouse - A cursor used on computers and laptops
Mouse - An annoying rodent.

Floppy - A 3 in diskette or the drive that reads them.
Floppy - A flimsy or non-erect object.

Driver - Something used to help programs, software, and hardware function.
Driver - One who operates a vehicle. Not to be confused with Miss Daisy.

Monitor - A TV-type screen that displays computer viewing.
Monitor - A person who monitors. Usually the worst job imaginable for a 5th grader.

Keyboard - A typing instrument that is used with computers or laptops.
Keyboard - A musical instrument similar to a piano or organ.

How'd I do so far?

Now you guys are getting it!!! Using exactly 5 words to define a computer term, then defining it again w/ 5 words, as a non-computer term.

How about this one:

printer-popular output besides the monitor
printer-person who prints professionally full-time
