Is this becoming a standard thing like SCSI has always been SCUZZY? Have
you guys heard SATA called "SAY TUH"?

It kills me to hear it, and to think one day I may be forced to use the term
myself.

THANKS!

I always thought SCSI were Sexy because that was how a lot of people
pronounced it even though it wasn't correct.

You may have to go with the flow of the language or you'd end up
stumping a cetrified technician.

It's a lot quicker to say sata than to say serial aaa-teee-aaa. I say
"SAYTUH" and if you don't like it - TFB.

Hey, what can you expect from people who can't even manage their own subject lines
and are to lazy to structure their messages and let the newsclient do the linebreaking.

I prefer to just call them "serial" rather than "SAY TUH". I suppose
"serial" could be mistaken for USB drives in conversation, but that never
seems to happen. I REALLY hope the SAY TUH thing doesn't catch on. Bugs me
so bad.

Haha. I thought I was bad -- I've got a big pet peeve with the use of the term
"issue". My god! Just count the number of times, and contexts in which this
term is used these days. I'm telling you, it is a cultural phenomonon --
something linguists could do phd thesis on. Drives me up the wall -- but I'm
getting better. Almost finished with a series of self hypnosis sessions, to get
me through this difficult time :) .

But as for SATA, that's all I've ever called it. It's just faster to say, and
thus no different from any other such acronym.

Yea, but he has a point too. When it was just ATA drives I just said
a-t-a and not aytah.

So other people do say it? Or are you just trying to make a point? Because
so far I have only heard 1 guy use the term and I was hoping it was not
already an established practice.

I know exactly what you mean. I guess its to be expected, people these days
are lazy and trendy at the same time. If "say tuh" sounds trendy, the lazy
trendy folk will follow.

Yes, I do say it that way. But it's not "SAY TUH" with a southern
drawl, it's simply SATA, like it is spelt. I don't know how many other
people say it like that but as I pointed out in the previous post it's
the quickest way to say it so that is how I use it. Every computer
tech I've talked to knew what I was talking about when I said SATA
instead of serial a-t-a.

Sorry, when I say it I guess it does sort of sound like Say-Tuh. Long
A then short A.

I know what you mean, I was just trying to spell it so there was no
mistaking what I meant. And just to clarify, I don't know that I have EVER
recited "serial A-T-A". When I refer to the drives I usually just say
"serial", no confusion yet, but then again I am usually the guy telling
people at work what those funny little connectors are on the new
motherboards. Our new machines are all SATA capable, but have PATA drives
still.

And I meant no disrespect by any of this post, I just wanted to know if this
term was popular or not. The original post was probably made right after I
listened to my coworker go on and on about sata this, sata that, all the
while burning inside with each mention of saytuh.

No offense taken. I didn't know the correct way to say it and just
automatically started saying Say-Tuh as it felt the most natural to
me. Time will tell if it becomes a part of the geek speak. :-)

I must apologize, after looking back at this post I made, I feel like a
jerk. See, the term was still so foreign to me when I posted it didn't even
occur to me that *not only* is the term being used elsewhere, it may be the
biggest tech phrase of the year.

I apologize for that post,

So you add insult to injury by not only top posting, but by implication
insulting those who responded?

Ya big knuckle head :) .
