For those who don't know, ciao means "hello" in Italian ;). Good looking forums, I love the security section. Security is one of the few topics I find interesting about computers, so I hope I can enjoy my stay :).

Right, ciao is both hi and bye in Italian, both being informal. There are more formal ways, but who's formal now a days ;).

The word originated as a contraction of "s-ciào vostro", (or "Sono vostro schiavo" in Italian) literally meaning "I am your slave". This greeting is analogous to the Latin Servus which is still used in a large section of central/eastern Europe by people in Hungary, Romania, Austria, Slovakia and Bavaria (Southern Germany), this in the native language of each speaker.

The word s-ciào is still used in Venetian (chiefly in Slovenia and Croatia where Venetian descendants are disaffected by the Italianization of Venetian culture) as an exclamation of resignation in unavoidable situations.
