= L =
lost in the noise
lossage /los'*j/ n.
[very common] The result of a bug
or malfunction. This is a mass or collective noun. "What a
loss!" and "What lossage!" are nearly synonymous. The former is
slightly more particular to the speaker's present circumstances;
the latter implies a continuing lose of which the speaker is
currently a victim. Thus (for example) a temporary hardware
failure is a loss, but bugs in an important tool (like a compiler)
are serious lossage.
