Now, now! You are just being difficult. You have to provide the web with the proper context. Search for: ADLD deadlock

You will quickly learn ADLD is a "CICS" "abend" error code meaning "deadlock". In fact, there are a whopping 18 pages on the internet matching that query and most of them will explain the meaning (contrast with nearly 6 billion pages featuring "the".) In other words, just exactly the sort of esoteric jargon the clueless like to toss around to show they are part of some "in" crowd of knowledgeable techies when nothing could be further from the truth.

It would be like someone waxing poetic about all the TAX on the Commodore Pet computer or the relative caché of the 0E trap vs. the 0D trap when it comes to fatal exceptions in windows.
