/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.
