> SQL is pronounced "sequel"

sorry, erika, it is not

how do you pronounce FBI?  feebee?  fuhbee?  effbye?

how do you pronounce CPU?   kapoo?  kipyoo?

by ryan fischer (thelist subscriber, coiuncidentally)

just because some microsoft weenies, er, excuse me, just because some people
pronounce it "squeal" or "sequel" does not make it right

as for gif, it's a soft g, like geranium

why?  because the guy that invented it says so, that's why!!
(hurl, er, i mean url upon request)
