No computer science term, eh?
I guess CS/IT engineers don't use that much of jargon. ๐Ÿ˜
I should have mentioned this is Part 1 ๐Ÿ˜‰

It's all up to chuckofalltrades to decide. We should however stick to the schedule. ๐Ÿ˜€ Wednesday is a good day for a new strip to go live.
Let me add something from my side!
HardDrive: Not a long and hectic drive by car.
Computer Chips: Not a snack that is eaten by the computers.
Bits & Bytes: Not bits of food that you can bite!
Very Nice.
Now I want to see the Computer science words ๐Ÿ˜
C: Not an alphabet of a language. In fact, its a complete language ๐Ÿ˜›
Bus: Not a bus on which people travel ๐Ÿ˜›
Constructor: Not a constructor involved in constructions ๐Ÿ˜›

Will come out with few more soon ๐Ÿ˜€
