You know, Facebook is good for something. Most of my new words are coming from FB friends lately.

JohnB: ” …so I bodged up a new one out of a piece of plexiglass.”

JohnB: “It’s an English term, AFAIK. It means a quick and dirty job, done hastily with what’s on hand. It’s meant to convey dirty and nasty improvisation, not the elegant sort.”

Of course, at Urban Dictionary you will find many other meanings for the word. As well as definitions for less politically correct terms for this idea.

(New text talk: AFAIK: As far as I know …)
