How have you been murdering my screen name?
« on: March 17, 2024, 08:12:42 PM »
In your head, how have you been pronouncing my screen name all these years?

Codeguy and Financeguy are all set, of course.

Oh, and Iím sure Mr. Bourke will pop by to say even they are saying it wrong and that their mothers should have made an appointment with a slippery elm stick while there was still time, then log off in a whisky-fueled rage without saying what it ďshouldĒ be.

I actually live in Dun Laoghaire, so it would be a bit sad if I didnít know how to pronounce it.
