  • I wonder if this has any relation to snippets?

    August 11, 2007

  • A snivitz is a computer problem, related to either hardware or software. The problem is usually smaller than a "glitch", or a "bug". A "bug" or a "glitch" is a known issue that can be solved, while a "snivitz" is something totally unexplained and unexpected. "Snivitzes" are usually individual and random problems, because if they are repetitive, then chances are it is a programming defect. Some examples of "snivitzes" can be a window closing unexpectedly or a random nonexpected error message.
