After about 40 seconds the stepper just gave way on me sending me straight to the floor. It was one of the four types of known pumps, namely, stepper motor.

I've always understood this word to mean a professional dancer.
But when you look it up in TFD, you don't get that definition as anything but an afterthought. How does that work?

TFD has thoroughly outdated definitions. It used to be a dancer or a horse. Nowadays it is a cat:

Actually it is a stepper motor like those used in a floppy drive to position the head:

Quote:
A spindle motor in the drive rotates the magnetic medium at a certain speed, while a stepper motor-operated mechanism moves the magnetic read/write heads radially along the surface of the disk.

There is a yet different stepper:

In this technological day and age nobody cares about dancers.
