Let's make matters worse

And let's see what we could make with all the other months :-)

jan - join, but faster
feb -
mar - (did you know "mar" is Portuguese for "sea"?)
apr - note that code is almost apt
may - may happen; like, it really doesn't matter whether the code produces an error
jun - even faster
jul - so fast that it'll suffle the elements and even lose some of them
aug - turn things into gold?
sep - make it SEP (somebody else's problem); if it catches an error, throw it to another process
oct - octal
nov -
dec - decimal

Anyone has other ideas, perhaps to complete the list? :-)

(OK, I admit it... that was really stupid...)

    I'd had the same thought off and on since leaving from work yesterday. You did much better than I'd been able. I was trying to use them all as TLA's, but hadn't come up with a single good one yet, but did figure I'd steal the APR idea from way up above.
