<humour> (Less commonly, "PBKAC", "PEBCAK", "PBCAK") Tech support shorthand for "problem (exists) between keyboard and chair".
An acronym commonly used by helpdesk technicians to indicate that a problem is due to the user rather than the system.
A description (usually abbreviated) used to close a trouble report that was obviously due to cluelessness on the user's part.
Alternatives include "PICNIC" - "problem in chair, not in computer" and "UBD" - "user brain damage".
The description pilot error is less derogatory and PBD - "programmer brain damage" rather than blaming the user, puts the blame on the programmer, implying that he must have been brain-damaged to create such a bug.
