User Error Replace User


In Computer Support “User Error” is an error made by the human user of a computer system, formal human error codes/terms are used in the context of human reliability. User Error and related phrases are given below:
  1. PEBKAC = "Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair"
  2. PICNIC  = "Problem In Chair Not In Computer"
  3. PIBCAK = "Problem Is Between Chair And Keyboard"
  4. ID-10-T Error = "Idiot Error"
  5. Layer 8 Issue
  6. Wetware Bugs

These slang terms are used by technical circles to mean that a problem is caused entirely by the fault of the user.

The Navy pronounces ID10T as "Eye Dee Ten Tango".
The Army pronounces ID10T as “One Delta Ten Tango”.

The networking administrators refers user errors as a "Layer 8 Issue".
The computing terminology refers user errors as "Wetware Bugs".

Let us hope that you never see these terms on your file when a serviceman is fixing your computer. J
