Jayden Vojchehoske's Web Definitions

Now I will tell you many diffrent words that I am supposed to define for you. You can find certain words by clicking the first letter of the word.

I think the wors Binary Numbers and Ajax are pretty intresting words. because they just seem like they wouldn't be that important for the internet.

on some words i had to use google rather than netlingo, but thats only because netling didn't have some of those words on there otherwise I most likely would've stayed on netlingo the whole time.
