[Abbrev., "Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair"] Used by
support people, particularly at call centers and help desks. Not used
with the public. Denotes pilot error as the cause of the crash,
especially stupid errors that even a luser could figure out. Very
derogatory. Usage: "Did you ever figure out why that guy couldn't
print?" "Yeah, he kept cancelling the operation before it could
finish. PEBKAC". See also ID10T. Compare pilot error, UBD.
