Block Transfer Computations

/bläk tran(t)s-ˈfər käm-pyu̇-ˈtā-shəns/
n. From the television series Dr. Who, in which it referred to computations so fiendishly subtle and complex that they could not be performed by machines. Used to refer to any task that should be expressible as an algorithm in theory, but isn't.
