Computer Trivia: “Cruncha. Cruncha. Cruncha.”

📅 March 17, 2015
“Cruncha. Cruncha. Cruncha.”

What’s that sound?

It’s a form of encouragement muttered to a machine running slowly after being bogged down with compute-intensive tasks. Whether it actually helps or not is anyone’s guess, but, for a brief moment during the incantation, it seems to somehow boost the computer’s self-esteem and provide added motivation to hurry up–just a little. Often spoken after drumming fingers on the table.

(Inspired from The New Hacker’s Dictionary.)
