DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

I bet non-English speaking people pronounce it randomly both ways. One time was talking with one guy and after 3 minutes realized that the strange sound that comes from his mouth means "SQL" big_smile

Was in a lengthy conversation once, non-native speaker here, where somebody kept talking about trains for some reason. Only about 20 minutes in did I realize the word was supposed to be "terrain"...

It made significantly more sense in context.

I bet! big_smile It's always funny to see how different people pronounce some words, sometimes even in different parts of the same country.

That's in England, when two Latvians speak in Latvian, we use custom broken IT English adopted to Latvian language and pronounce a bunch of stuff as it's written, because our language sounds exactly as it's written, so "eSS Qu eLL" big_smile Btw our translated IT terms are complete nightmare, because seems that these linguists who come up with them are not IT people. So we have a term for Windows Start button/menu "palaistuve" - the same word also means a slut big_smile Sometimes I simply don't understand what is meant with something, so first I switch all UI's to English and then I can understand what's up. "Can you help me with something in phone settings?" - "Yes, right after you will switch it to English" big_smile

P.S. Guess what updated this evening

READY OR NOT follows a young bride (Samara Weaving) as she joins her new husband’s (Mark O’Brien) rich, eccentric family (Adam Brody, Henry Czerny, Andie MacDowell) in a time-honored tradition that turns into a lethal game with everyone fighting for their survival.

Looks like it's an interesting, funny and brutal movie... cool
