terminal junkie

terminal junkie: [UK] n. A wannabee or early larval
   stage hacker who spends most of his or her time wandering the
   directory tree and writing noddy programs just to get a fix of
   computer time.  Variants include `terminal jockey', `console
   junkie', and console jockey.  The term `console jockey'
   seems to imply more expertise than the other three (possibly
   because of the exalted status of the console relative to an
   ordinary terminal).  See also twink, read-only
