What about the adjective? Kludgy?
- Hack is not generally a synonym, since sense 1 (jargon file) is uncommon in tech circles. Even then, hack has more of a sense of cleverness. kludge is closer to mickey-moused, jerry-rigged, or bubble gum and band-aids/spit and baler twine i.e; only works through brute-force and divine will --belg4mit
Shouldn't the template be removed? There's no discussion here, nor on the RfD page (just somehting about a sub-page). --belg4mit
- Thank you for the notice. The deletion request was about the subpage and properly tagged on it, and has already been handled. I removed the tag. --Tohru 00:22, 18 July 2007 (UTC)
I've always heard this word pronounced with a long "u" sound, like the vowel sound in huge. I wonder how widespread that pronunciation is? Rholton 15:49, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
- That's the only way that I've heard it pronounced (IPA(key): /u/). That's what the Jargon File gives as well. I'm changing it 184.108.40.206 01:30, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
- Correction I was looking at the Jargon File entry for kluge. You may be thinking of that as well.220.127.116.11 02:28, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
