Aren't you afraid you'll get the evil eye if you poke fun? After all, nobody likes getting poked in the eye. :)

GUI = sticky like maple syrup
SATA = One of those male red devil illustrations
SQL = Movie with a number after, like Terminator 2
SCSI = how we used to describe a really ugly woman
GIF = a present from someone with a lisp

Don't forget: PCMCIA = Pee-See-Em-See-Eye-Aye!

Oh, and another controversial one back in the BBS days was the pronunciation of "Sysop." At first I always said SIE-sop (with a long 'I'), but then more and more people suggested SISS-op. Makes sense, I suppose, because after all it was a system operator.

And yes, I usually do pronounce GUI as "Gooey."

Yeah, I can imagine system operators didn't like to be called Sigh Sop. Kind of makes them sound like an Ed Grimley type dude. :) Playing the triangle is tougher than it looks don't you know!
