Huw's 'confession' made me realize that many of the tech-related postings
on this list seem to be in one of the three categories-of-procrastination:

(1) It's OK if I procrastinate about fixing the blrfl...isn't it?

(2) Well guys, I'm still procrastinating about fettling that nackered blrfl.

(3) Wahoo! I finally stopped procrastinating about that blrfl; damn near
forgot how well this car could run!

"blrfl": general-purpose technical term, as in "He used a pneumatic blrfl
to install the whatyamacallit. (Preferred to the more archaic "gizmo".)

Not sure about "nackered", but Phil P. finds it useful, so I thought I'd
give it a try. Seemed a good fit with "fettling".
