:terminal junkie: [UK] n. A {wannabee} or early {larval
stage} hacker who spends most of his or her time wandering the
directory tree and writing {noddy} programs just to get a fix of
computer time. Variants include `terminal jockey', `console
junkie', and {console jockey}. The term `console jockey'
seems to imply more expertise than the other three (possibly
because of the exalted status of the {{console}} relative to an
ordinary terminal). See also {twink}, {read-only
