 TENSE adj. Of programs, very clever and efficient. A tense piece of
       code often got that way because it was highly bummed, but sometimes it
       was just based on a great idea. A comment in a clever display routine
       by Mike Kazar: "This routine is so tense it will bring tears to
       your eyes. Much thanks to Craig Everhart and James Gosling for
       inspiring this hack attack." A tense programmer is one who
       produces tense code.
