A list of programmer jargon
modulo - 'except' as in "modulo means an equivalence relation modulo its use by programmers"
orthogonal - 'unrelated' as in "the use of 'orthogonal' by programmers is orthogonal to its use by mathematicians"
land, landed - when a new feature is added to a library, it isn't mearly 'added', it 'lands' -- as if from the heavens, like a magical bird or an expensive jet
cut - when a new version of library is released it isn't mearly 'released' it is 'cut' -- like a sparkling diamond
curated - if you release a list that wasn't created by an algorithm, then say it's 'curated' as in "A curated list of programmer jargon"
