dink: /dink/, adj.

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. See macdink.
