The first one I ever learned: GIGO
Garbage In, Garbage Out.
Roughly analagous to PICNIC, I suppose...

And the latest one: EAFP
Easier to Ask Forgiveness than Permission.
First coined by Rear Admiral Grace Murry Hopper, inventor of COBOL, it has been taken as a semantical philosophy in the use of the Python Language.

PEBCAK: Problem Exists Between Chair And Keyboard (usually reported as Error ID: 10T)

I have to share this quote from the IRC channel, since it's related to the topic:

Quote
<Deozaan> "Tired of thinking WTF and never getting TMI doing your SMF searches? Do you LOL at the POS results the current SMF search returns? Get ZillaRank now and say STFU to the SOB who wrote the script for that SMF search!"
