Utiliflex has hired a real fully Web 2.0 compliant programmer, on purpose. While Chris CAN actually code he's also into Behavior Driven Development and all the kewlest shiny buzzword things. I've learned a lot working with him, we're now using Subversion for code version control, and Redmine for project management and bug/feature tracking. But what I have learned most of the power of TLA's and buzzwords.. He is very infected with them, and if an idea has a TLA or kewl buzzword, it has more weight. So I am tossing out a new TLA and buzzword:

Polymorphic Jenga Block aka: PJB
Code that behaves differently depending on where or how in the stack of code it is used.

If it gets some weight, maybe he won't laugh so much when he talks about my coding style.

You definitely have a unique coding style, meuon. I would go more for Generalized Inebriated Jengas On Ethanol. In other words, GIJOE. When the snake strikes, you get the job done... very very carefully.

It's not a TLA, of course. So maybe he won't go for it.

Usage of buzzwords outside of the sales process makes me prejudge people. If I hear "y'all" I assume someone is from the south. If a sentence is ended with "eh?" I assume someone is Canadian. If "dude" makes up every third word of the sentence, I assume they're from California. If random buzzwords and TLAs are throw into a sentence, I assume that person is out to screw me.
