New words that I made up

At times, when I am testing downloaded software, or other stuff that I may not want to keeep,

I create names for directories and programs.

One of my passionate directory names is gronk.

cd /gronk.
When the debugging or learning is challanging, I use a directory called grunt
cd /grunt

For a program whose name I want to remember, I call it a fif-a-lang.

I have no idea how fif-a-lang got into my brain, but its there

cd /gronk
fifalang.
cd ..

Lets see your list of favourite names. There is a Canadian TV program called Schitts Creek. I was thinking of adopting part one of that name.

Re: New words that I made up

If you want a word that's tailor made for this kind of thing, consider using plergb. Plergb is specifically undefined, so you're supposed to define what you mean by it when you use it, such as, "Plergb, defined as I wish I knew what to say about that." Before using the word, be sure and read the Plergb Bylaws Summary to avoid improper usage, if such is possible.

Re: New words that I made up

I quite like confuzzled - it starts off confused and ends up puzzled - it describes my state of mind far too often.

Re: New words that I made up

this isn't original either but dilligaf springs to mind as a useful moniker for an SELinux policy tool.

My use of gronk started 40 years ago. Around 1975. I used it in Cobol programs,-- the promenant language at that time.

Perhaps I could add "cobol" as one of my alternative swear words, along with tso and fortran.

Hi Ocratato
Is that because you are riding on a turtle's back?

I have a similar word for that state of mind, though I call it "JN4OldSchool".

Re: New words that I made up

I sometimes call a testing program, segfault.

Our prime-minister's father used fuddle-duddle as a substitute swearword.
