T Hacker Slang: time T
An unspecified but usually well-understood time, often used in conjunction with a later time T+1. “We'll meet on campus at time T or at Louie's at time T+1” means, in the context of going out for dinner: “We can meet on campus and go to Louie's, or we can meet at Louie's itself a bit later.” (Louie's was a Chinese restaurant in Palo Alto that was a favorite with hackers.) Had the number 30 been used instead of the number 1, it would have implied that the travel time from campus to Louie's is 30 minutes; whatever time T is (and that hasn't been decided on yet), you can meet half an hour later at Louie's than you could on campus and end up eating at the same time. Time T equals minus infinity.

call (l)
convene, convoke, muster, summon. These verbs mean to demand or request to appear, come, or assemble: called a taxi; convened a meeting; will convoke the legislature; mustering the militia; summoned a witness.

Poly + Call = Poly.ti.ko
