Something that has been affected in an adverse way by the presence (or assumed presence) of David Pithouse. Such examples are:
- when something disappears and is presumed permanently missing, or
- when a piece of software stops working, starts working abnormally, or is found to have never worked in the first place
Orignally came about when Dave took The CD Library home with him for some reason. It has never been seen since.
"Oi! Someone's Daved the <insert item here>!"
"Oh great. <insert item(s)> been Daved."
Q: "Dude, what happened to your shoes?" A: "I Daved them with a cup of coffee. I don't want to talk about it."
Although similar in effect the term bent has slightly different connotations.
