FISH queue

(humour)   (By analogy with FIFO - first-in, first-out) first in, still here.

A joking way of pointing out that processing of a particular sequence of events or requests has stopped dead. Also "FISH mode" and "FISHnet"; the latter may be applied to any network that is running really slowly or exhibiting extreme flakiness.
