<jargon> 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.
