adjective, informal
broken and useless; no longer working or effective.

I used to get very, very angry when things broke on me. I still do, when I run into obstinance or ignorance. But inanimate objects? Not worth the rage. I get frustrated, sure, but I try to avoid untoward displays, and posts.

My main PC is bricked as I await a new power supply. It throws off my rhythm. I’m getting my feet back under me so I can sprint towards the oncoming finish line. I’m hopeful that I can pick up my old pace and get going in such a way that I won’t get so winded every again.

This is just one last hiccup.

I hope.
