Waitress: "Is Pepsi okay?" Me: "IS MONOPOLY MONEY OKAY?!"
This made me LOL - WarLord
I'm gonna use that one :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Mo Kargas
3 project managers and 1 developer. Anyone seeing the issue here?
3 managers too many? ;) - Jemm
You know it - Mo Kargas

Do you pronounce sudo as sue-doo or sue-doe or su-su-sudio?
I pronounce it as sue-doe. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I pronounce it "Run as Administrator" - Jemm
sue-doe - rönin
I started pronouncing it su-su-sudio somewhere in the 80's - Marco(aureliusmaximus)
That's awesome, Marco, hehe. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Anyone else? - Scoble, Alex Scoble
i pronouce it as "root" :P - imabonehead
I don't say that out loud. - John (bird whisperer)
I've never said that word in my life. - Derrick
I say su-doe. Jeff says sue-doo. It's a common debate here. - Rochelle
sue-doe - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I <3 you Derrick. May you always remain a sudo virgin. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Is this a question for Linux nerds? Or a surreptitious request for spelling correction? - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist from iPhone
I'll try my best. - Derrick
It's like playdough but instead of playing you sue so it's more adult sounding. - Todd Hoff
LOL, Bren, not just for Linux nerds. UNIX nerds can participate too. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I have a good one, but it is quite misogynist. - Julian
Sue doo - Victor Ganata
Oh well, Victor, we had to have something to argue about. :D Other than compulsory voting that is, hehe. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Another sue-doo here, as well. Used to be sue-doe for a short time, till I learned what it actually stood for, then sue-doo made more sense. - April Russo
I think that saying it like pseudo makes more sense since it allows you to act as pseudo root. Of course this means that the original creators had such a sense of humor, but they may not have. I just can't say sue doo after hearing every other UNIX/Linux admin I've ever known for the last 20 years call it sudoe. I hadn't heard sue doo used until yesterday and it struck me as such a comical way to say it that I started this thread in multiple places. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I don't know how true this is, but the etymology Wikipedia presents is that it's from 'su' and the verb 'do' because it lets you do things as the superuser. I think this is supported by the fact that the config file is /etc/sudoers, i.e., "su doers" which basically lists the users who can do things as the superuser. - Victor Ganata
Yes, that appears to be true, but it's not nearly as neat plus it makes it sound too close to doo doo. Anyhow, I think this is one of those things where both are now accepted as proper pronunciation. No need for us to create another internet war, unless you really want to have fun and waste a few minutes of your life doing it. :D - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I think it's also a bit of a slice of life that someone, and I doubt I'm the only one, can go through over 20 years working or living in a space and not be aware of things that happened within that space. So much knowledge is out there that even in a given field we won't encounter most of it. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
"Sue-doe" - Tyson Key
Sue-DOH! - Morgan Fugel
Heh, I guess Eivind's is what Homer Simpson would say after he just realized he had typed sudo rm -rf * while he was in / - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I am on record as having pronounced it "sue-doo." - Julian
sue-dough - Janet
Sue-dew make me a sandwich. - Ken Gidley from iPhone
S.U. do - NOT THE CRICKET
Doe a deer - Eric - It's My Thing
su-su-sudio - Colette
sue-doh - Kevin Johnson

Why can telemarketers not understand the concept of do not call? I have told the same company countless times to stop calling, double and triple checked our Do Not Call registry and they still insist on calling 2-3 times a week! And then they get all bitchy with me when I tell them I'm going to file a complaint!
Next time, act interested and get their hopes really high. Then tell them you couldn't care less of their product/service. - Jemm
Have a toddler come to stay and pass them the phone every time a telemarketer calls. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I had a situation like that when I was nannying in San Francisco. I was SO BUSY with those boys & they just kept calling. I finally started answering the call but left the phone unattended on the kitchen counter whilst I continued doing whatever I was doing. The calls eventually stopped completely. I think it took a couple of weeks, though. I remember I was in the middle of potty-training the youngest at the time. I'm sure they heard some interesting conversations. :) - Lisa L. Seifert
Here's where you can file a complaint with the DNC list https://complaints.donotcall.gov/complai... - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

If someone asks you to email them a photo or other image file, if you are in the habit of dropping the image in MS Word first, and sending them the doc file, please STOP! Just send them the actual image file.
no Word.png
I still don't get why people do this. But I'm working with more seniors lately and I think this may be a habit they picked up 15+ years ago. - Corinne L
I seem to recall having at least one email system that wouldn't allow image files past the filters, but would allow word files. - Rebecca Hedreen
When you cut an image you need to paste it somewhere. Paint was never an easy program to use. I think this more than anything started the trend. - Eric - It's My Thing
It's not their email filters in the cases that I am dealing with. Sometimes I get one image directly attached, and a different one in a doc at the same time. And the photos are not being cut and pasted from anywhere. They do have the originals, which are much better size and quality than what I end up extracting from their doc files. Sometimes the ones in the doc files are even badly distorted and stay that way once extracted. - April Russo
Embed the word in a powerpoint and then put it into a RAR file - Amit Patel
Just print it, scan it, attach it into a Word document, save as PDF and then zip it and attach it to the e-mail. - Jemm
Eric - It's My Thing
:sad Bill Clinton: Edit: Or happy, actually. - Jemm
Victor Ganata
I am amused by how often Mark Twain shows up in science fiction.
I owned maybe 7 HOGs where he's a character via time travel. - Anika
I think partly it's cause he had a distinct look. - Andrew C (✔)
I wonder if it's only because *A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" is one of the earliest examples of American sci-fi. - Victor Ganata
And in one scifi novel they still talked about League of Nations (it was written before UN) :) - Jemm

Nine Stubborn Brain Myths That Just Won't Die, Debunked by Science - Lifehacker http://m.lifehacker.com/5867049...
The left-brain/right-brain crap drives me nuts #petpeeve - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Interesting. It's possible that stress might actually kill brain cells more than alcohol can. I never really thought about it that way before. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Yay alcohol! - MoTO: Team Marina
God knows stress has killed them in me... - Spidra Webster
I wouldn't say that alcohol killing brain cells is a myth, but it's likely your liver will give out long before your brain does… - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I always hated the 10% thing. Mostly because of all the spiritual and drug based (some may argue they're two sides of the same coin :)) solutions that are always suggested to utilize the remaining 90%. - Morgan Fugel
Well, according to how some people behave, I think they _choose_ to utilize only 10% (or less). - Jemm
Victor, I think it depends on the brain...some of those actually have only limited funtionality even without drugs, alcohol or religions. And livers have, like brains do, quite amazing self healing possibilities. (I remember when I quit drinking I was a week or two away from just keeling over and dying from drinking. 6 weeks later my liver stats were back to normal...but I won't judge abotu my brain...) - Uli
Here's one that is not a myth: Chronically high blood sugar, as you would get with uncontrolled Type 2 Diabetes, WILL decrease cognitive abilities. That alone could get a ton of people to cut down on the junk food and sugary drinks, if they actually knew about it. - April Russo
Yeah, everyone's body is different, and I realize that the plural of "anecdote" is not "data" but all I know is that all the hard core alcoholics who I've seen get admitted to the ICU for upper GI bleeding have somewhat functional brains but completely scarred-down non-functional livers. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
The main reason why hard core alcoholics get brain damage like Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome and probably alcoholic dementia is because of the severe nutrient deficits that result from drinking large quantities of alcohol on a daily basis (and often, the resultant lack of funds to buy food.) - Victor Ganata
I have an uncle and a cousin who have Wernicke-Korsakoff and they rarely eat. :-/ - Jenny H. from Android

"Apple is pretty much the king of the closed PC platforms. This is the company that won't let anyone else make Mac PCs. Yet, Microsoft is still going to allow anyone who wants to build a PC from scratch a way to get an OEM copy of Windows 8. You have a very successful version of Minecraft on the Mac and iOS platforms.

From the lab: Lumia 920 low-light shootout with Nokia 808, iPhone 5, HTC One X and Galaxy S III -- Engadget
"During our visit to the company's Tampere, Finland research and development complex, we were given access to a comprehensive testing suite, enabling us to shoot with a Lumia 920 prototype and a handful of competing products in a controlled lighting environment. Technicians dimmed the lights and let us snap a static scene with each handset at just 5 lux -- a level on par with what you may expect on a dimly lit city street in the middle of the night." - Jemm from Bookmarklet
