/plok't*/ Press Lots Of Keys To Abort. To press random keys
in an attempt to get some response from the system. One might
plokta when the abort procedure for a program is not known, or
when trying to figure out if the system is just sluggish or
really hung. Plokta can also be used while trying to figure
out any unknown key sequence for a particular operation.
Someone going into "plokta mode" usually places both hands
flat on the keyboard and mashes them down, hoping for some
useful response.
