baud barf
Jump to user comments
jargon /bawd barf/ The garbage one gets on the displayscreen when using a modem connection with some protocol
setting (especially line speed) incorrect, or when someone
picks up a voice extension on the same line, or when really
bad line noise disrupts the connection. Baud barf is not
completely random, by the way; hackers with a lot of
serial-line experience can usually tell whether the device at
the other end is expecting a higher or lower speed than the
terminal is set to. *Really* experienced ones can identify
particular speeds.
