/dink/ Said of a machine that has the bitty box
nature; a machine too small to be worth bothering with - sometimes the system you're currently forced to work on.
First heard from an MIT
hacker working on a CP/M
system with 64K, in reference to any 6502
system, then from fans of 32 bit architectures about 16-bit machines.
"GNUMACS will never work on that dink machine."
Probably derived from mainstream "dinky", which isn't sufficiently pejorative.
