An elegant word coined by a government colleague some years back, before SGI got whacked:

Me: "How ya doin'? Are you going to buy that big SGI?"

Mate: "Nah, I'm in craptivity"

Me: ??

Mate: "You remember we bought the HP server farm? It's such a piece of crap that it has destroyed our support and maintenance funding lines. It also absorbs my planning and mission engineering lines, so I don't even have the resources left to do the market research needed to replace the POS or buy the SGI. I am captive to the crap. I'm in craptivity."
