GNOME: Guh-nome, knowm
gee-nome, who say knowm? that sounds like kde. K-nowm.
KDE: K.D.E. Kadie
kde but if you say it fast it sounds like kadie.
as for varchar i say var-char. i've heard char being called care. because character's char is a care not char but i still say char. it sounds better.
procmail just proc-mail...
my girlfriends mobo just kinda died (ata control and floppy controller no longer work) and the only way i could get it working at all was a pci ata controller, which i couldn't install to because i can't boot off cdrom from it and floppy won't work cause the controller is dead. and windows refuses to move from one computer to another if it is on a pci ata controller. so long story short she is running linux now. and she was talking on AIM to a friend and said that i set it up with a "gooey" and he laughed at her for spelling it that way. she also found SCSI funny.
