James Paige: Sorlock, you pronounce FMF as "eff-emm-eff"? What is wrong with "famoof"? :)

...Bonus points for making me look up "Haecity"

S'orlok Reaves: I feel like I captured the "haecity" of acronyms with that one. ;)

S'orlok Reaves: Understandable; the technical spelling is "heacceity". Most authors prefer the simpler spelling; I guess it is rather unfair to use this, though.
