in thread I refer to a non-specified carbonated beverage as a:

I'd usually interpret "cold drink" as a beer, but I wouldn't be suprised if you handed me a soft drink. Actually, if you made any reference to a drink that I didn't understand, I'd interpret it as a beer.

Saying 'pop' in Canberra will get ridicule rather than a drink, and I always think of 'soda' as 'soda water' - carbonated water.

    Yeah jepri, I agree about the soda water. IIRC the alcoholic Police Captain in Hill Street Blues way back used to drink soda water with his girlfriend (Veronica Hamil - can't remember his name) and he'd order a "club soda".

[Corion]: Hehe - $work is a place where we have lots of (money) accounts, and lots of journals where every transaction is recorded. But our HR system where the accounts of hours worked and vacation days taken are stored, there is no real account of who changed ...
[Corion]: ... that balance, and when. And it seems to me that they somehow really messed up the database since the start of the year and have been frantically adding and subtracting numbers from the totals, but without trace ;)
