Computing

A mnemonic is a term, symbol or name used to define or specify a computing function. Mnemonics are used in computing to provide users with a means to quickly access a function, service or process, bypassing the actual more lengthy method used to perform or achieve it.

Here's Demetri Martin's mnemonic for remembering the order of the alphabet:

Always Beware of Cats Darting Erratically Forward Going Halfway Into Jungles, Kathy, Lest Mopey Neighbors Open Poorly Quilted Radioactive Sunlamps To Ultra-Violet Waves or X-rays; Yo Zack!

In the days when opposite and adjacent were called perpendicular and base, my father taught me "Some People Have Curly Brown Hair Till Painted Black."

I was taught two mnemonics for that.

My dad gave me Some Old Hippy Caught A Herring Trawling Off America, while the legendary Paddy Doohan - my Math teacher in junior high - gave me Oh Hell Another Hour Of Algebra.

There was a Saved By The Bell episode* when I was a kiddy in which Screech tells Zack his mnemonic for the planets: the word mvemjsunp. Weirdly, this has stuck with me for what must be fifteen or twenty years now. I very much like this biblical one though!


* I think it was Saved by the Bell, at any rate.
