Random quotes from The Hacker's Dictionay

DPB /d*-pib'/ vt. 

 [from the PDP-10 instruction set] To
plop something down in the middle.  Usage: silly.  "DPB yourself
into that couch there."  The connotation would be that the couch
is full except for one slot just big enough for one last person to
sit in.  DPB means `DePosit Byte', and was the name of a PDP-10
instruction that inserts some bits into the middle of some other
bits.  Hackish usage has been kept alive by the Common LISP
function of the same name.
