    wetware - that under used stuff between your ears

    shelfware - documentation written to satisfy some beaurocratic rule, which is placed on a shelf and never read.

    adware - is just one big advert, or uses ads as a revenue source
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Liveware - the users.

    Hotware - what most of the guys in engineering called a certain operator.
