"chimputer" from Urban Dictionary

What's up! ernie.cordell@computer.org sent you this definition.


A hybrid of [chimp] and [computer], a chimputer is a machine that
behaves badly, especially one that had previously operated well,
until some attack or catastrophic error that requires the attention
of an administrator or a security investigator. Possibly a result of
mishearing or misunderstanding, the variant "chumputer" is also
occasionally encountered.

Man, I had a gigaquad box this morning, but after that power surge,
it's just a chimputer.

CodeSculptor, you've got a chimputer after that breach -- you need
a good Security Monkey.

Sit back, I'll drive, I know how to swing a chimputer.
