At a work meeting, after a co-worker described the redundancy purposely built into the university's network system, he was asked some questions about the design. He said that this allows for a "more graceful fault tolerance" when a network switch goes down. As we are talking about the network on a busy university, this is understandably important. There are classes that can't even be taught without internet access. So our IT staff is constantly, proactively working on ways to minimize failure.
The phrase he used stuck with me.
A more graceful fault tolerance.
I want a more graceful fault tolerance.
I want more (additional)
graceful (characterized by beauty of movement, style, form, etc.)
fault (a defect or imperfection, an error or mistake, a misdeed or transgression)
tolerance (patience, sufferance, forbearance; liberality, impartiality, open-mindedness)
I WANT TO HAVE A MORE GRACEFUL FAULT TOLERANCE!!
And I hope you can have one for me, too. Mm'k? Thanks!
