Words that aren't

Here are a few words that technical people tend to use that aren't in the dictionary or aren't used correctly:
* Architected - as in, "that's a well architected design" (2 millions hits on Google - architecting has 3.3 million).
* Performant - as in, "that code is so fast, it's highly performant" (over 9 million hits on Google).
* Conformant - as in, "that code passes checkstyle, it's conformant code" (nearly 8 million hits on Google).
