fucking\ up\ the\ math

A person, system or root cause that is at fault, causing errors, or making mistakes leading to data loss or the generation of spurious data.
(lex.) Originally seen c. 1990 during a jam session of the rock band Chim Chim, where sometime vocalist Neil Walls was heard to utter:
Sitting in a dark room // Sitting on my ass // Watching TV // Sitting in a dark room // FUCKING UP THE MATH!
It was later determined that the last lyric was supposed to be fucking up the Man, but it appeared the tape recording machine used that day, or maybe the piece of media, was fucking up the math.

Do you think it's the X-130 switches that are causing the data loss in this scenario, or the RJI cards? Well, Juan's most recent and rigorous battery of fmd5 analysis would lead us to believe that the X21-12 tape drives are fucking up the math.
