icbm address

icbm address in Technology

networking, humour
(Or "missile address") The form used to register a site with the Usenet mapping project includes a space for longitude and latitude, preferably to seconds-of-arc accuracy. This is actually used for generating geographically-correct maps of Usenet links on a plotter; however, it has become traditional to refer to this as one's "ICBM address" or "missile address", and many people include it in their sig block with that name. (A real missile address would include target altitude.)
