= I =
ID10T error /I-D-ten-T er'*r/
Synonym for PEBKAC,
e.g. "The user is being an idiot". Tech-support people passing a
problem report to someone higher up the food chain (and presumably
better equipped to deal with idiots) may ask the user to convey
that there seems to be an I-D-ten-T error. Users never twig.
