Word of the day

Kludge – an ill-assorted collection of parts assembled to fulfil a particular purpose;  a software or hardware configuration that, while inelegant, inefficient, clumsy, or patched together, succeeds in solving a specific problem or performing a particular task; a workaround or quick-and-dirty solution that is clumsy, inelegant, inefficient, difficult to extend and hard to maintain; a system, especially a computer system, that is constituted of poorly matched elements or of elements originally intended for other applications; an awkward or inferior computer system or program that is created quickly to solve a problem; to improvise or put together from an ill-assorted collection of parts.

    His mother, hoping he would be an artist misnamed him Klint, so that didn’t work, He did develop a grudge for constructive form, and he mulched up a mixture of commands from windows 8 and XP. It was a great Kludge. So weird a kludge that no virus could fudge it, they called it Klint Kludgit . Microsoft hired him and nudged it, To W10. Yes the best of Kling Kludge, mixed with sludge from big Soft. Now no one is happy.
