(Or "flakey") Subject to frequent lossage. This use is of course related to the
common slang use of the word to describe a person as eccentric, crazy, or just
unreliable. A system that is flaky is working, sort of - enough that you are
tempted to try to use it - but fails frequently enough that the odds in favour
of finishing what you start are low. Commonwealth hackish prefers dodgy.
