  POP
         Point Of Presence (Internet, ISP)
         

From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

  pop
   /pop/
  
      [from the operation that removes the top of a stack, and the fact that
      procedure return addresses are usually saved on the stack] (also
      capitalized ?POP?)
  
      1. vt. To remove something from a stack. If a person says he/she has
      popped something from his stack, that means he/she has finally finished
      working on it and can now remove it from the list of things hanging
      overhead.
  
      2. When a discussion gets to a level of detail so deep that the main point
      of the discussion is being lost, someone will shout ?Pop!?, meaning ?Get
      back up to a higher level!? The shout is frequently accompanied by an
      upthrust arm with a finger pointing to the ceiling.
  
      3. [all-caps, as ?POP?] Point of Presence, a bank of dial-in lines allowing
      customers to make (local) calls into an ISP. This is borderline techspeak.
