’twas your post which inspired me to report my experience. These first impressions are useful IMHO.

Although I don’t feel your using the word “Use in anger” correctly in my mind, you are correct it can be used like this.
I just don’t think its used in this scenario very much these days. (I think its originates from military stuff)

I use it quite frequently at work in relation to software and/or data – that’s the thing with colloquialisms, they’re often confined to specific communities – which may be large or small, geographically or technically linked. They can expire in some communities before others…

I’m looking forward to it’s next outing anyway 😉
