If it weren't for TV, we'd all be watching TV by candlelight.

You say that like the english language isn't full of words that sound different then they are spelled.
laugh out loud I was actually thinking of the phrase "coup dtat" or "coup de grce". I hope people don't say those with the "queue" pronunciation. Bigeye

Steve Gibson on password policies [grc.com]: I mean, I don't get this change it every eight weeks. ... It's not as if passwords are traveling by camel after they've been stolen, going to the bad guys, and so there's, like, some weird eight-week window, like, oh, we're going to change your password so that the stale password no longer works. ... And all this does is make IT people despised because users, who are not dumb, they think, why am I - why do I have to do this? What problem is this solving?

Now I'm wondering is this another regional dialect thing like "soda" vs "pop"?

We should all post how we say it and where we're from laugh out loud

I'm from California and I say "q-pon"

You "q-pon" people are obviously wrong since no other word with "cou" is pronounced with a "q" sound.



I hope no one finds such a word.
