*xkcd’s latest comic is about tech-support, and the script that tech-support personnel (have to) follow. At one point, the caller is told he can use ‘shibboleet’ as a code word to mean he’s not completely tech-illiterate.
Shibboleet, or shibbol33t in l33tsp34k, derives from ‘shibboleth’, a word from the Hebrew bible. The word itself has a far more sinister history, as anybody familiar with The West Wing should be able to tell you.
* xkcd has to be spelt this way. XKCD is all right too. Xkcd is frowned upon![hr]
The test I created is still open. I want enough votes for a statistically significant result. Do take the test!
