The extra time elicited a couple more defs - so here we have it, 12
meanings for our word CONFIDENTE. Please vote for 2 before our deadline:

1. A con-man.

2. A confessor [Ital.]

3. A chest of drawers.

4. One who confesses; a penitent.

5. A third-party guarantor in a banking transaction.

6. [Fr.] A person who writes letters for people who are illiterate.

chivalric order.

8. A person with superior, usually specialized knowledge or highly
refined taste; a connoisseur.

9. A watchword used by the Spanish Inquisition; believed to be a
short version of Confidente in Deum (Mediaeval Latin), trusting in God.

10. A sofa or settee, especially of the 18th century, having a triangular
seat at each end divided from the greater part of the seat by an armrest.

11. [Obs.] A sofa where the seating is 's'-shaped so that a lady and a
gentleman can sit one on each side and talk to each other with an arm
between them.

12. (Computers) A set of symbols used to represent blocks of binary data,
in which the original block of data is represented by a larger block of
data which includes additional bits arranged in such a way that the
original data may be read even if one or more of the bits of the encoded
data is changed, as in a noisy communication channel. Various codes are
available which can correct different numbers or patterns of errors in the
transmitted data.
