    Talking How would you pronounce...

    It's about time for another crazy poll, so:
    How would you pronounce the word "Queatrix"?
    The reason I'm asking is because a lot of people that have actually said the word to me say "qeetrix" rather than the real thing, so I'm thinking of changing it to "quaytrix".

    Cue-ay-trix.
    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    Corollary/piggybacking/thread derailment: how do folks mentally pronounce my last name? I've probably heard 'em all, but now I am curious.

    As far as I care, there are two correct answers.

    Why does this remind me of Keeping Up Appearances? Bucket vs Bouquet.

    It just rolls off my tongue. Sinkula sounds a lot like Dracula to me but sink replaces the first syllable. Quite an interesting name!

    Did that make sense?

    'Queatrix' rhymes with 'theatrics'.
    There are 10 types of people in this world, those who cringed when reading the beginning of this sentence and those who salivated to how superior they are for understanding something as simple as binary.
