Here is a (very) small error I found on page 206 of "PC Hardware in a

Nutshell, Second Edition". "from hanger queens" should read, "from hangar queens". The term "hangar queen" comes from aviation where a "hangar queen" is an aircraft that rarely flies because it always has problems, and is usually in for repair, or because it has been "cannibalized" for spare parts. AUTHOR: Confirmed.
