Filo is the crazy scientist guy from the movie UHF with Weird Al. He's a guy who creates sweetness technologies to help the UHF people stop the evil plans of R.J. Fletcher, the local television magnate.

Thanks to Erik Fish for telling me that he was named after Filo Farnsworth, the inventor of the television.

Programmer-ese for "First In, Last Out". Equivalent to LIFO, but easier to say. Describes the order objects are processed in when using a stack. By contrast, a queue is FIFO (First In, First Out).

Also a good way to think about nesting E2 HTML tags -- the first tag you open is the last one you should close(<B><I>...</I></B>). Some browsers (those that stick to strict W3C standards) will fail to close one or both HTML tags at all otherwise.
