State Memory: Data internal to a module that survives unchanged from invocation o invocation of that module.
Storage: Pertaining to a device into which data can be entered, in which it can be held, and from which it can be retrieved at a later time.

Track: One of multiple concentric circular rings of data on a single data-bearing surface of a disk. Tracks at the same location on different surfaces form a cylinder.
TSR (Terminate and Stay Resident): A program which remains in memory after terminating in order to provide services to other programs or the user. The name comes from the name of the DOS function call used to remain in memory after termination.
