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

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

Daemons are benevolent or benign nature spirits, beings of the same nature as both mortals and gods, similar to ghosts, chthonic heroes, spirit guides, forces of nature or the gods themselves.
