C
noun /siː,s,k,tʃ,ks,ʃ/

The PDP-11, from the Digital Equipment Corporation, was a coveted machine. It was the original computer to run a new programming language called C, which was on its way to becoming the hackers standard. Gregory, as it happened, didnt have any spare PDP-11s at his disposal. But the repairman took the opportunity to question some of Nelsons blithe predictions in Computer Lib, and Nelson, in response, unleashed his glib and bitter tirade against the conservative ignoramuses in the computer business.

b) $100; a c-note.
