fascist


 
<jargon> Said of a computer system with excessive or annoying
security barriers, usage limits, or access policies.  The
implication is that said policies are preventing hackers from
getting interesting work done.  The variant "fascistic" seems
to have been preferred at MIT.
 
In the design of languages and other software tools, "the
fascist alternative" is the most restrictive and structured
way of capturing a particular function; the implication is
that this may be desirable in order to simplify the
implementation or provide tighter error checking.  Compare
bondage-and-discipline language, although that term is
global rather than local.

    I speak Spanish and I can help you learning faster if you like. But I also want to be helped. This is very important for me, I can´ t speak English well yet but I try to learn some words every day. I´ m also interested in Russian language, so, if you are patient and want to share your knowledge with me or learn Spanish, you´ re welcome. My hobbies are playing piano, listening to music, painting, spend time with friends, etc. Estoy aprendiendo Inglés, me falta mucho por conocer todavía, pero intento practicar cada día, si querés practicar o ayudarme, escribíme, va a ser un gusto. Qué hago en mi tiempo libre? Escucho música, toco el piano, me junto con amigos, salgo a correr, intento aprovechar el tiempo, no hay mucho... jaja.
