  • In amid Google results there are a small number of bona-fide uses of this as a normal word, typically in computer contexts:

    (1) Do the above mentioned places have wireless internet magicry?

    (2) This man makes picture magicry

    (3) so you only need to display the button image, no need to link it to something, no need for roll over magicry

    (4) One reason I've always disliked the Ateksoft solution is that it requires installation of Ateksoft magicry on the PC.

    (5) after some database magicry from Andy

    Also one interesting, comparable use in a non-computer context:

    (6) The technical aspect is fairly easy because it is a maneuver where you stay in the straps and you do not perform any fancy sail magicry

    And surprisingly, a much earlier use in the literal sense of "magic" (not in the OED) in some truly execrable poetry by Lucy Maud Montgomery:

    There is never a wind to sing o'er the sea

    On its dimpled bosom that holdeth in fee

    Wealth of silver and magicry;

    and the harbor is like to an ebon cup

    With mother-o'-pearl to the lips lined up,

    And brimmed with the wine of entranced delight,

    Purple and rare, from the flagon of night.
