Chuck probably knows this one, but a friend referred to a "lyck" of data. 

"Huh???" (Both of my eyes open in spite of only one cup o' Java that
morning).

So he explained the data names like so:

8 bits = byte 
4 bits = nybble 
3 bits = snyff, lyck 
2 bits = shave and a haircut 
1 bit  = the amount you don't like something
