From Jargon File (4.2.0, 31 JAN 2000) [jargon]:
   bot spot n.   [MUD] The user on a MUD with the longest connect
   time.   Derives from the fact that {bot}s on MUDS often stay
   constantly connected and appear at the bottom of the list.
  
  

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   batch file
  
      (Or script) A text file containing
      {operating system} commands which are executed automatically
      by the {command-line interpreter}.   In {Unix}, this is called
      a "{shell script}" since it is the Unix {shell} which includes
      the {command-line interpreter}.   Batch files can be used as a
      simple way to combine existing commands into new commands.
  
      {autoexec.bat} is the best known example of an {MS-DOS} batch
      file.

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   batch processing
  
      A system that takes a set (a "batch") of
      commands or jobs, executes them and returns the results, all
      without human intervention.   This contrasts with an
      {interactive} system where the user's commands and the
      computer's responses are interleaved during a single run.
  
      A batch system typically takes its commands from a disk file
      (or a set of {punched cards} or {magnetic tape} in the old
      days) and returns the results to a file (or prints them).
      Often there is a queue of jobs which the system processes as
      resources become available.
  
      Since the advent of the {personal computer}, the term "batch"
      has come to mean automating frequently performed tasks that
      would otherwise be done interactively by storing those
      commands in a "{batch file}" or "{script}".   Usually this file
      is read by some kind of {command interpreter} but batch
      processing is sometimes used with GUI-based applications that
      define script equivalents for menu selections and other mouse
      actions.   Such a recorded sequence of GUI actions is sometimes
      called a "{macro}".   This may only exist in memory and may not
      be saved to disk whereas a batch normally implies something
      stored on disk.

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   bits per inch
  
      (BPI) A measure of the recording density of a {magnetic
      tape} or {disk}.
  
      (1995-04-13)
  
  

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   bits per pixel
  
      (bpp) The number of {bits} of information
      stored per {pixel} of an {image} or displayed by a {graphics
      adapter}.   The more bits there are, the more colours can be
      represented, but the more memory is required to store or
      display the image.
  
      A colour can be described by the intensities of red, green and
      blue ({RGB}) components.   Allowing 8 {bits} (1 {byte}) per
      component (24 bits per pixel) gives 256 levels for each
      component and over 16 million different colours - more than
      the human eye can distinguish.   {Microsoft Windows} [and
      others?] calls this {truecolour}.   An image of 1024x768 with
      24 bpp requires over 2 MB of memory.
  
      "High colour" uses 16 bpp (or 15 bpp), 5 bits for blue, 5 bits
      for red and 6 bits for green.   This reduced colour precision
      gives a slight loss of image quality at a 1/3 saving on
      memory.
  
      Standard {VGA} uses a {palette} of 16 colours (4 bpp), each
      colour in the palette is 24 bit.   Standard {SVGA} uses a
      {palette} of 256 colours (8 bpp).
  
      Some graphics hardware and software support 32-bit colour
      depths, including an 8-bit "{alpha channel}" for transparency
      effects.

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   bits per second
  
      (bps, b/s) The unit in which {data
      rate} is measured.
  
      For example, a {modem}'s data rate is usually measured in
      {kilobits} per second.   In 1996, the maximum modem speed for
      use on the {PSTN} was 33.6 kbps, rising to 56 kbps in 1997.
  
      Note that kilo- (k), mega- (M), etc. in data rates denote
      powers of 1000, not 1024.

From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:
   Bath-sheba
      daughter of the oath, or of seven, called also Bath-shu'a (1
      Chr. 3:5), was the daughter of Eliam (2 Sam. 11:3) or Ammiel (1
      Chr. 3:5), and wife of Uriah the Hittite. David committed
      adultery with her (2 Sam. 11:4, 5; Ps. 51:1). The child born in
      adultery died (2 Sam. 12:15-19). After her husband was slain
      (11:15) she was married to David (11:27), and became the mother
      of Solomon (12:24; 1 Kings 1:11; 2:13). She took a prominent
      part in securing the succession of Solomon to the throne (1
      Kings 1:11, 16-21).
     

From Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's) [hitchcock]:
   Bathsheba, the seventh daughter; the daughter of satiety
