Okay.
I'm hoping this isn't too far off base for this community...

Basically, I'm looking at the origin of swear words.
The society of my story's about four hundred years in the future. Over half my characters are cyborgs of some degree or another. Biological talk doesn't have the same impact... and as I'm one of those awkward people who tends to use an excess of asterisks instead of the actual word...
I'm looking for technical, mechanical or computer terminology that could be corrupted into usable expletives. The characters already use 'crash off' as a way of basically saying '**** off and die', for example.
Hell, if it was good enough for Red Dwarf to make up their own...

Thanks!
