Short for "resolve". Commonly used as a verb in online virtual worlds such as Second Life. When an object or avatar is brought into the virtual world, it "rezzes". Textures used by the object may take a while to become fully visible, so when there's a lot of lag, objects may take a while to rez.
Whoa! My avie's hair hasn't rezzed for me yet.

Rez (in Second Life) means to create or to make an object appear. If something were to appear out of nowhere, someone should say it "Rezzed in". Reresolution, or just simply, rerez, is when a program who was derezzed, "comes back to life", or resurrected. The term was inspired by the classic science-fiction movie Tron.
In Second Life, two friends teleport into a new location - "Oh, this place is beautiful!", "Can't see yet, I'm still rezzing."
