  1. ok, vassil3427 is over at my house and there is a disagreement so to say. How do you pronounce cache as in like his hard drive has an 8mb cache? Like "catch" or like a weapons"cache"??? This is an argument that must be resolved:) !

    You could have 8MB of cash...

    Open a text editor, and press Shift+4, and hold it down. Then select all of what you have, copy it, then paste it until the document is 8MB in size :giddy:

    The correct pronunciation of cache is the way you'd say cash.

    Cache (Pronounced cash,)
    "A special high-speed storage mechanism. It can be either a reserved section of main memory or an independent high-speed storage device. Two types of caching are commonly used in personal computers: memory caching and disk caching.

    ....middle of article snipped ....

    "When data is found in the cache, it is called a cache hit, and the effectiveness of a cache is judged by its hit rate. Many cache systems use a technique known as smart caching, in which the system can recognize certain types of frequently used data. The strategies for determining which information should be kept in the cache constitute some of the more interesting problems in computer science."

    Additional meaning
    To cache a piece of data to (place it in) fast access computer memory, or to cache (move a snapshot of) a Web page to disk for faster retrieval on future calls of that particular page. The act of caching.

    The English word pronounced "kashay" has a different spelling, and definition, as follows.

    ca·chet (kă-shā')
    A mark or quality, as of distinction, individuality, or authenticity: “Federal courts have a certain cachet which state courts lack” (Christian Science Monitor).
    A seal on a document, such as a letter.

    A commemorative design stamped on an envelope to mark a postal or philatelic event.
    A motto forming part of a postal cancellation.
    A kind of wafer capsule formerly used by pharmacists for presenting an unpleasant-tasting drug.
    [French, from Old French, from cacher, to press. See cache.]
