It's good to know a foreign language

Everyone in 'IT' who is technical should read this: ASCII Pronunciation Rules for Programmers.


So the next time a programmer walks up to you and says, "oh, it's easy! Just type wax bang at hash buck grapes circumflex and splat wane", you'll know what they mean.

Than and it's cool being able to pronounce characters that most people - if they notice them at all - tend to sort of skid over them if they encounter them on paper.

More than ... heresy!
