An Ohnosecond (short for Oh no! Second) is the very short moment of time it takes you to realize that you just messed up in a big way while working on your computer.

Some examples of Ohnoseconds are: accidentally clicking the No Button when you meant to save a document and end up losing all your work, clicking Send for an e-mail message before adding an important attachment, triggering a system shut down or restart while in the middle of something important, etc.
