heee heee.

Don't feel so bad. I was on the phone with a friend/client in Brighton who had served in the British Paratroopers or some such. Anyways he was giving me the password for accessing his server. One of those cryptic mishmashes of letters and numbers...

So he reads it off to me, all "alpha tango bravo" style... then to make sure I read it back, making up words as best I can...

A moment of silence before he broke out laughing at me... hahahaha :)

G..um as in Jerry
K.. um as in Kartoffle...

;)
