FISH Queue

/fish kyü/

[acronym, by analogy with FIFO (First In, First Out)]

n. '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.
