    Hmm, if the G is supposed to be soft, then I think maybe Gizmag | New and Emerging Technology News, is one of 'those' sites that everyone seems to be keen on blocking nowadays as opposed to the tech type I thought it as.

    All these years and I've been calling myself Jillian when I should have been Gillian and Geehubb when I should be Jeehubb!

    Isn't a Gill a measure of liquid?

    NASS and EXXY
    As well as INNY for .ini.. Although I do spell out AVI instead of saying AVVY like you might expect.

    Agreed. Just because he invented it doesn't mean that he can control how people pronounce it, plus it plain stupid to use a soft g and he shouldn't get so worked up about it.
    I use gaypegs anyway

    Absolutely.

    Especially as the acronym stands for Graphics Interchange Format. You don't say 'Jraphics Interchange Format' do you?

    Ditto. How about TCL? I say T.C.L. but there are many misguided fools who say "tickle". The worse is Tim Toady which I completely deny the existence of, even though I was a Perl programmer for 4 years.
