In the computer world: a clunky, unpolished, quickly thrown together, "solution" that accomplishes the required task, but is the equivalent of a Band-Aid or a "temporary support brace". Kluges are often used when the problem must be corrected ASAP and no time is allowed for a formal solution, or when the person resolving the issue does not know how to fix it correctly. When used correctly, Kluges are always temporary and replaced by a permanent solution. Kluges are not look upon with high regard, and people who use kluges as permanent solutions are not look upon as good administrators or developers.

An unholy, fucked up, stump broke, grabasstic piece of amphibious shit that started out an engineered solution, but due to niggerum, and breathing all the white mans air, it resembles nothing of its original cohesive design.
