Out of the Blue

As February draws to a close, I want to give the broadcast professionals of the world something to work on for next year. Look at the way the month is spelled, and take note of the "r" in the middle there. Not the one at the end; most of you have that one down cold. No, I'm talking about the first one, which makes the pronunciation of the word "February," not "Febuary." You have 11 months to practice that so hopefully we can get some progress on this for February 2010.

February Links: Thanks Ant and Mike Martinez.
Play: Altair.
Speedway Tower Defense.
Slammings.
Links: Inside The Inboxes of 15 Fictional Villains.
Stories: NBC orders Jerry Seinfeld reality series.
Secret Lives of Comic Store Employees.
Auction: Up, up and away- Rare Superman comic for sale. Thanks Digg.
Images: Funny Faces of Senior Citizens Playing Wii.
Media: Elevator. NSFW.
VCR Hack.
Flying car reaches new milestone. Thanks Slashdot.

I don't mind dubya-dubya-dubya, except that it would actually be shorter to say the entire words that it stands for. World wide web has three syllables. Dubyadubyadubya has six. Double u double u double u has nine! The abbreviation takes three times longer to say than what it stands for!
