Wolves LUG Christmas Quiz

Back by popular demand (well somebody asked me if I would do another one
this year!), here is this year's Christmas Quiz. Answers (and maybe a
prize) at the Christmas Bash on the 17th December (Answers will be
posted on the mailing list afterwards).

Please email your answers directly to me and not to the list.

For a bit of variation, this year some of the questions may have a
science fiction and/or a computer angle, but I will not tell you
which!Be prepared to waste hours (or days!) visiting some very obscure
corners of the internet. There is at least one trick question.

They probably won't help, but my past quizzes are at:

Let's start with some easy acronyms:
1.BASIC

2.CUTS

3.COFF

4.ELF

Right, now you have been lulled into a false sense of security with the
easy questions, we'll start on the really hard ones:
