lobotomy = L = locked and loaded

locals, the pl.n.

The users on one's local network (as opposed, say, to people one reaches via public Internet connections). The marked thing about this usage is how little it has to do with real-space distance. "I have to do some tweaking on this mail utility before releasing it to the locals."
