It may be great techno-speak in a bar and perhaps make for a good pick-up line, but go ahead and use that kind of terminology in a resume and see if it gets you any further than the round file.

Kind of like telling others one specializes in the minimization of entropy as it pertains to fluid mechanics, when one's a plumber (who usually earn a fairly decent living).

On a related note, don't ask me what a toilet and one claiming to be a polysyllablist might share in common. 8^)
