Q-line

[IRC] v. To ban a particular IRC server from connecting to one's own; does to it what K-line does to an individual. Since this is applied transitively, it has the effect of partitioning the IRC network, which is generally a {bad thing}. quad n. 1. Two bits; syn. for quarter, crumb, tayste. 2. A four-pack of anything (compare hex, sense 2). 3. The rectangle or box glyph used in the APL language for various arcane purposes mostly related to I/O. Former Ivy-Leaguers and Oxbridge types are said to associate it with nostalgic memories of dear old University.
