    Computer science,
    We're on the cutting edge*!




    *our uni computers haven't been updated in so long the version of chrome on them won't load Linked.In, and it even struggles with GMail, only loading a basic HTML version of it.

    Yeah, fortunately I don't need it too much because it doesn't apply to a lot of what I'd be doing, it's awful though... Terrible.

    This thread reminds me of days when I wasn't the elite Irish poster. Better, more innocent days.

    I just looked at this comment again thinking it was a new one and immediately thought of Soho old people's home again before seeing I had already said it... I guess some things never change.

    Wait, how is Frome pronounced?
    I don't think I've ever heard it out loud, only writted down. Is it not Frome as in rhymes with Bone?

    I'm only realising now that words ending in agh (and finishing with an a or ahh sound) is unique to the anglicisation of Irish names. Probably should have realised earlier considering the difficulty people have in pronouncing Clodagh and similar names though...
