 BUCKY BITS (primarily Stanford) n. The bits produced by the CTRL and
       META shift keys on a Stanford (or Knight) keyboard. Rumor has it that
       the idea for extra bits for characters came from Niklaus Wirth, and
       that his nickname was `Bucky'. DOUBLE BUCKY: adj. Using both the CTRL
       and META keys. "The command to burn all LEDs is double bucky
       F."
