By the way, is your name a reference to the printing presses?
Yes, in a way. The word "kluge" (also "kludge") by some accounts derives from the non-electric Kluge paper feeders being cumbersome to use and many people being astonished they actually work given their complexity. Often breaking down, difficult to repair and use, but came before technological advances really "permitted" the devices to run automatically. That the device worked at all is awesome.
In contemporary use, it sometimes has a derogatory tone implying the system designed does not function adequately because it has many poorly thought-out patches which do not fix the core problem - but it still runs -- often, a kludge (or kluge) is considered a temporary fix to a problem which deserves more attention. I intend it to simply mean a clever, though inelegant, solution to a problem, which I find fits my personality fairly well.
