he process of combining many short lines and curves into longer, interpolated ones called "splines."

Also, the process of combining many imprecise and abstract ideas into one larger, complex one.

Splines are used in graphics programs to draw nice curves, like bezier curves, mainly in vector drawing program (like VectorDesigner of last year bundle...)
We can imagine that the mainframe, after decoding the image, is  trying to "vectorize" it...

Cool! Then it can say "JohnC. was here" along the curve. Sweet!

I don't get it; Mozy always gives me this message in its backup window when it starts doing backups. For something like visually decoding an image, I can understand...but...preparing a whole bunch of files for an online backup?

Mozy devs put this in as a joke reference to the game Sim City. When it loads a level it always says that, and according to the dev, it doesn't actually do anything.

SimCity 2000. When you made terrain in the terrain editor a sexy voice would come on saying "reticulating splines."

Also, The Sims. It will say that when the game is loading. At least, that is what I thought of when I saw it.
