They would soon after get signed to Fat Wreck Chords, which the rest of its albums were released through. The band consisted of Cinder Block, Jeffrey Bischoff, Pete Rypins, Vincent Camacho. Starting on February 15, 1994 at the Cattle Club in Sacramento CA and ending on April 6, 1994 in Vancouver Tilt supported Green Day on their Dookie tour. Tilt's song "Crying Jag" appears on the soundtrack for the film Glory Daze. Tilt broke up for a short time in 1996 but reunited in 1997 with Jimi Cheetah of Screw 32.

Retching

Retching

Retching is the reverse movement of the stomach and esophagus without vomiting. It can be caused by bad smell or choking. The function is thought to be mixing gastric contents with intestinal refluxate in order to buffer the former and give it momentum in preparation of vomiting. Treatments include medication and correction of the fluid and electrolyte balance.

Rumination

Rumination

Rumination syndrome, or Merycism, is an under-diagnosed chronic condition characterized by effortless regurgitation of most meals following consumption. There is no retching, nausea, heartburn, odours, or abdominal pains associated with the regurgitation, as there is with typical vomiting. The disorder has been historically documented as affecting only infants, young children, and people with cognitive disabilities. Today it is being diagnosed in increasing numbers of otherwise healthy adolescents and adults, though there is a lack of awareness of the condition by doctors, patients and the general public. Rumination syndrome presents itself in a variety of ways, especially when comparing an adult without a mental disability to an infant or to a mentally impaired individual. Like related GI disorders, rumination can adversely affect normal functioning and the social lives of individuals. It has been linked with depression. There is little comprehensive data regarding rumination syndrome in otherwise healthy individuals. Most people with the disorder are private about their illness, and are often misdiagnosed due to the number of symptoms, and the clinical similarities between rumination syndrome and other disorders of the stomach and esophagus, such as gastroparesis and bulimia nervosa. These include the acid-induced erosion of the esophagus and enamel, halitosis, malnutrition, severe weight loss and an unquenchable appetite. Individuals may begin regurgitating within a minute following ingestion, and the full cycle of ingestion and regurgitation can mimic the binging and purging of bulimia.

TCP IP

TCP IP

1. [Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol] The wide-area-networking protocol that makes the Internet work, and the only one most hackers can speak the name of without laughing or retching. Unlike such allegedly ‘standard’ competitors such as X.25, DECnet, and the ISO 7-layer stack, TCP/IP evolved primarily by actually being used, rather than being handed down from on high by a vendor or a heavily-politicized standards committee. Consequently, it (a) works, (b) actually promotes cheap cross-platform connectivity, and (c) annoys the hell out of corporate and governmental empire-builders everywhere. Hackers value all three of these properties. See creationism. 2. [Amateur Packet Radio] Formerly expanded as “The Crap Phil Is Pushing”. The reference is to Phil Karn, KA9Q, and the context was an ongoing technical/political war between the majority of sites still running AX.25 and the TCP/IP relays. TCP/IP won.
