How do YOU say FMCB?
Ok, here's the situation:
My wife loves to say "Free McBoot" (pronunciation: Mikboot) every time the 1.8 menu pops up. Is that normal? (not the crazy habit of saying it every time she sees it printed but the pronunciation, lol)
Since the first release (barring JNABK's ronald mcdonald boot avatar) I have always referred to it as M-C-Boot.
Just wondering how it is actually pronounced. Or if there is no standard, how most people say it.
Free M-C Boot is how I pronounce.
same here, for what it may matter
(Bootleg, 1 more post and I got incredible 145!!!!!)
Doesn't exactly matter, I would just feel better about laughing about it if I was sure I wasn't the one saying it all wrong, lol.
lol, no I was referring to MY way of pronouncing it, given the fact that I'm not even a native speaker
but if you wanna laugh, here's how ital ppl pronounce the abbreviation:
aff-e amm-e -cheee -beee
I guess your wife is pretty much on the still-acceptable side with her Mik-Boot
I personally pronounce it with an Irish Accent every time I say it:p
I'm actually working on an Irish themed FREEMCB.CNF that of course will be green and have some cool ascii art.:crazy:
and i'm drkunk:shhh:

I just say it like effemceebee.
I personally also prefer to say "free em ci boot".
MC is a shortcut for a combined noun, so in my logic every one of those two letters are there for a single noun ("Memory" and "Card" ^^ ) and it is no "Mc" like from "McDoof"/McDonalds.
...or of course, like bfoos said. :)
