(adj.) describing someone who is uncool. A way to describe someone who does something that is not socially natural or cool enough to hang out with cool people.
"She's vegan and natural but she acts condescending to people who aren't and that's why people don't want to be vegan. She's so sans."

San
1. When somebody approves of something which they think is really cool or down. In fact, 'San' is so cool itself it cannot be defined accurately. The pure essence of 'San' cannot be contained within a physical form, for it is ethereal and a part of many things.
2. It can also be used to greet a person, in place of certain trivialties as 'hello', or 'safe', for example.
3. It can be used in place of a word to, ironically show ones gratitude for it.
(The elongation of the word 'San', i.e. 'Saaaaaan' merely extends the emphasis of whichever context it is used in.)
1. Person 1: Hey I just found a £20 note on the floor.

Person 2: San!

2. Person 1: Alright man, how's it going?

Person 2: San.

3. Person 1: Hey would you like some whiskey?

Person 2: Surely you mean some san. That whiskey is pretty beasty.

SAN
(Storage Area Network) A network of storage disks. In large enterprises, a SAN connects multiple servers to a centralized pool of disk storage. Compared to managing hundreds of servers, each with their own disks, SANs improve system administration. By treating all the company's storage as a single resource, disk maintenance and routine backups are easier to schedule and control. In some SANs, the disks themselves can copy data to other disks for backup without any processing overhead at the host computers.

High Speed
The SAN network allows data transfers between computers and disks at the same high peripheral channel speeds as when they are directly attached. Fibre Channel is a driving force with SANs and is typically used to encapsulate SCSI commands. SSA and ESCON channels are also supported.

Centralized or Distributed
A centralized SAN connects multiple servers to a collection of disks, whereas a distributed SAN typically uses one or more Fibre Channel or SCSI switches to connect nodes within buildings or campuses. For long distances, SAN traffic is transferred over ATM, SONET or dark fiber. To guarantee complete recovery in a disaster, dual, redundant SANs are deployed, one a mirror of the other and each in separate locations.

Over IP
Another SAN option is IP storage, which enables data transfer via IP over fast Gigabit Ethernet locally or via the Internet to anywhere in the world (see IP storage). See LAN free backup.

Channel Attached Vs. Network Attached
A related storage device is the network attached storage (NAS) system, which is a file server that attaches to the LAN like any other client or server in the network. Rather than containing a full-blown operating system, the NAS uses a slim microkernel specialized for handling only file reads and writes (CIFS/SMB, NFS, NCP). However, the NAS is subject to the variable behavior and overhead of a network that may contain thousands of users. See block level.

Sanity.

Originally taken from the roleplaying game Call of Cthulhu. In this game you'd play as mortals trying to retain their sanity in the face of Lovecraftian horrors from Beyond. More recently however, the term has been used more casually to describe sanity in all its aspects. Almost always written entirely in capital letters, as it was on some of the character sheets for the game.
Person 1: "Did you see the first Dungeons and Dragons movie?"
Person 2: "Yes, unfortunately. It wasn't a horror, but I swear I lost SAN."
