in thread My favorite silent English letter is:

I was also su-prised by the idea that surprise's first r is silent. I've always pronounced both r's for as long as I can remember (which nowadays is about 10 minutes).

I wonder if it's a regional thing? My mother was from the (US) midwest. Most of the folks out there talk about the nation's capital as "Warshington DC". In which case, there's the on-again, off-again r for you...again.

[Discipulus]: I'm the subject or is the program? i think i always am the subject
[erix]: it an invite to pull, as I understand it
[Discipulus]: Concave or convex?
[Discipulus]: who make the invitation? the program?!?
[choroba]: it's historical
[erix]: pull requests
[choroba]: originally, you sent a pull request to someone by email, i.e. you asked them to pull from your repo
[Discipulus]: if is the author of a patch, is more like a 'request to push' into rather than a pull request..
[choroba]: as it's considered unpolite to push to someone else's repo
