Uudob

ThereWiki | RecentChanges | Preferences

uudob stands for "Usually Uniform Distributed OBject", and means an object that is so static that the client can assume it exists before it hears anything from any server. That's why houses sometimes appear briefly with obsolete text on their sign: the house exterior is a uudob, and the sign text doesn't correct until the server re-sends the object to the client.
