You have me laughing.
"Dinking" - One can dink with - an object, procedure and probably thoughts.
I have used fiddly dink, twiddle or fiddle with, or tweak(ing). In terms
of the Warthin Starry, we tweaked, fiddled, twiddled and "dinked" this
method, but not the Steiner - our chosen method.
The term came from our electron microscopist's vernacular, year ago and he
was always "fiddly dinking" with things, usually to make whatever he was
doing work better. A clever person with lots of creativeness. Where he
got the term, I don't know.
Well, I am off to "dink" around in my the lab, it is a slow day and a Friday.
