Meaning of ALL-ELBOWS

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

Said of a tsr (terminate-and-stay-resident) mess-dos program, such as the N pop-up calendar and calculator utilities that circulate on bbs systems: unsociable. Used to describe a program that rudely steals the resources that it needs without considering that other TSRs may also be resident. One particularly common form of rudeness is lock-up due to programs fighting over the keyboard interrupt.

[jargon file]
