"I'm adding undelete function" sounds desperately ungrammatical to me:
the very least it's missing an article.
You don't recognize "function" as a mass noun? Form follows function? Some function is too costly provide? Which half of the function shall we leave out?
You're right that "I have connectivity to Chicago" is grammatically correct, and it isn't nonsense as I said. It's just a nonsensical phrasing for a statement that I have a connection, when there are plainer ways to phrase it. Like saying that what distinguishes a window from a door is that a window has transparency.
