Being "on the DL" means so many different things.

@dbucklin I use the commandline for most things, so "on the DL" for me would mean I am currently downloading something to `~/dl`, the rename of my `~/Downloads`.

And it is less and less an issue as time goes by, but starting about 20 years ago, it also meant a directory that could be deleted at a moments notice, in case someone wanted to know what I had DL in my dl. ^_^
