crikey even the guy who invented the term said it  most useful concept in thermo and also the worst  understood !.

my general take - 'cept for the usual - measure of disorder- the entropy of the universe is increasing ie we're burning out etc 

is that Q/T   is a measure of the amount of heat which does (ordered) work  and that which doesnt.

-  sorry - i've probably made it even worse.
