2006-06-21 :: baroquen

ba·roque·n : adj.

  1. Being at once extravagant, complex, or bizarre and partially or completely non-functional: "Our legacy software is so convoluted and full of ghastly logical bugs -- its not just baroque, its baroquen."

  2. Flawed, inoperable, or improperly functioning usually as a consequence of faulty design, potentially numerous and poorly planned or integrated additions, and substandard maintenance procedures: "The accumulated cruft of a dozen indifferent maintainers has only aggravated the original design flaws; it has become a baroquen masterpiece."
