I feel a bit 'funny' about these new threads on PF1... in two minds if they are good or bad, but then the people at PCWorld/Fairfax are our kind benefactors :thumbs:

I always went "you ha" for the first name, with a taint of gutteral within the "you", and no seperation between the 'you' and the 'ha'.

Damn - I only ever did English linguistics at uni. :o

Same here. I wonder if anyone shortens his name to "You"? Can just imagine them trying to get his attention: "Hey, You!!" :D

Hmmm... I hope he hasn't got mod rights on this forum or I might not be seen again for a while... :p

Ha, he, hi, ho, hu. Mummum.
