  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
  The  users  on  one's  local  network  (as  opposed,  say  to  people 
  one  reaches  via  public  {Internet}  or  {UUCP}  connections).  The 
  marked  thing  about  this  usage  is  how  little  it  has  to  do  with 
  real-space  distance.  "I  have  to  do  some  tweaking  on  this  mail 
  utility  before  releasing  it  to  the  locals."
