I was delighted today when, on a walk down to Starbucks, Aaron Oliver coined "the Tourniquet Pattern" to explain something I'd done a while back. I would have thought that someone far more clever had come up with this ages ago, but Google seems to suggest otherwise.
Some may argue that it's basically just the Adapter or Facade with a more exciting name, but neither of these names conveys the same degree of distate and judgment that Tourniquet does. This is the battlefield medicine of Adapters--we're going to have to lose that leg eventually, but in the mean time let's accomplish the mission and live to tell the tale.
I fell instantly in love with this name (at least as much as I'm already in love with the Diaper Pattern) and I intend to share it far and wide. Enjoy.
