An excerpt from a conversation I had today with my boss over IM:

(3:39:21 PM) Erik: you'd be glad to hear that I fabricated a few gonkulators today.
(3:39:58 PM) Dan: for Boston?
(3:40:05 PM) Erik: yes
(3:40:10 PM) Erik: the T1 loopback plug.
(3:40:18 PM) Erik: ...I think would classify as a gonkulator.
(3:42:09 PM) Dan: yes gonkulator, specie [sic] Toneloopicus
(3:42:20 PM) Erik: ooh - very nice.
(3:42:38 PM) Dan: thanks

You heard it here first, folks. A new species of gonkulator was coined today.
