slowbie

noun; zero derivation
A person with slow reaction time and or procrastinator, especially in computer games ('stop being a slowbie, you newbie!' My suitemate was in a technological lingo mode when I was talking to him. This time I was playing a game with him, and he was commenting on my speed and reaction time in the game and how it was slowing him down. Like the word 'newbie', 'slowbie' is a product of a technological lingo type of speech, where the suffix 'bie' can be added to any number words to form 'techie' terms. I've also heard this term used to describe procrastinators.
 
Don't be such a slowbie.
Etymology : new zero derivation; arising from 'slow' + 'bie'
Source : conversation with suitemate
