Advent Calendar for Geeks #08

Everyday of Advent I'm going to post a geeky link to something you can play with online until it is time to open your presents.

Sideways Dictionary

Sideways Dictionary is a dictionary of technical jargon explained through everyday analogies.

If the jargon term you are looking for is not there, then there is a suggest button, although I do not know whether this site is actively supported. There are currently fewer than one hundred terms available, although each analogy is tagged so you can cross reference your analogy all you like.
