Partykof... what the hack does that mean?

Partykof is a slang word distorted from the phrase "Power take-off" which refers to a switch located on the front console of a Tractor, This word is commonly used among the Kibbutz members (the Kibbutznikim) in Israel.

A power take-off (PTO) is a splined driveshaft, usually on a tractor or truck, that can be used to provide power to an attachment or separate machine. It is designed to be easily connected and disconnected. The power take-off allows implements to draw energy from the tractor's engine.

I decided to use this analogy as most of the information I gather, comes from the Internet, and harnessing it's power for the benefit of IT is what I do.
