GeneralYet another Word that creates a Universe (YAWTCAU II) PinmemberBillWoodruff6-Jun-14 17:19 
Previously, in adventures in bilious vocabulary, I posted about the delightful Yiddish word "Farpotshket" which I thought very appropriate for code (that someone else wrote, naturally) which has been totally screwed up by repeated attempts to fix it: [^].
 
Today's OED's word-of-the-day e-mail brought me to a virtual Broca's-Area-gasm: "Metagrobolize," meaning: to "puzzle, mystify, confound," with a rarer secondary meaning of "to puzzle-out."
 
Methinks this is a great word to describe the process of making oneself indispensable to an employer by creating code that only you can understand, and maintain, and its awesome, inscrutable, results.
I'm an artist: it's self evident that word implies looking for something all the time without ever finding it in full. It is the opposite of saying : ‘I know all about it. I've already found it.’
 
As far as I'm concerned, the word means: ‘I am looking. I am hunting for it. I am deeply involved.’
Vincent Van Gogh
