lost in the underflow
Jump to user comments
jargon Too small to be worth considering; more specifically,
small beyond the limits of accuracy or measurement. This is a
reference to "floating point underflow".
The Hacker's Jargon File claimed that it is also a pun on
"undertow" (a kind of fast, cold current that sometimes runs
just offshore and can be dangerous to swimmers).
