I was looking back on a bit of Python code I wrote a year or two ago for a nanotechnology facility and remembered that as part of their process they move the 'device' back and forth a few nanometers before finalising their settings. I coded the function that did it as 'shoogle'.
(ˈʃʊɡəl ) or shoogie (ˈʃʊɡiː) dialect, mainly Scottish
- to shake, sway, or rock back and forth noun
- a rocking motion; shake
I still feel absurdly pleased with myself that some £50m nanotech plant is 'shoogling' every few hours.
I got to wondering - what words have you snuck into code that you are secretly pleased with?
