The feeling of utter exhileration one experiences when one's software finally runs flawlessly. Originally defined in the Devil's DP Dictionary and Jargon File as...
algorasm: n. (Origin: blend of algorithm + orgasm) A sudden, short-lived moment of pleasure enjoyed by the programmer when the final kludge rings the bell.
Person 1: I finally got my Python script to run right.
Person 2: Took you long enough. Bet you feel great, huh?
Person 1: Yeah, total algorasm!
