Thinko is a computer science slang term for a mistake in the writing of a program that arises from the temporary disruption of the thought process, typically leading to a bug.
A typical example of a thinko would be the use of an idiom or syntax taken from a computer language other than the one currently being used, or perhaps the simple inversion of a boolean test that reverses the intended meaning.
