to optimize (optimized)
- To act as an optimist.
- To make more efficient, specifically computer programs.
- To make somthing optimal.
- optimise(outside the US)
From the above and below I merged in two intransitive verb meanings:
- To act optimistically or as an optimist.
- To become optimal.
Other dictionary sites do list two intransitive meanings, [www.allwords.com/word-optimize.html] has:
To be optimistic or act optimistically. To become optimal.
 has the acting as an optimist meaning recorded in 1844 and making the most of meaning in 1857.
I left the related terms untouched, and finally I synchronised the changes with optimise.

Is optimization a valid noun? Or can only optimizing be used? Wiki-uk 16:10, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
