    In Canada and Britain it's supposed to be Zed, but here in Canada most of us say Zee. If you have troubleyou can use the system that (insert name of person with good idea) posted about. My entire family always does this, and we never have problems.

    Real easy, real fast .02 explanation! :)

    Z = "Zee" [sound]
    C = "See" [sound]
    S = "SSS" [sound]

    Like I said earlier its Zee, otherwise that ABC song wouldn't have been developed. Z has to rhyme with B, C, D, E, G, P, and V otherwise the song doesn't work.

    I have a question for you people who pronounce Z as Zed.

    Does it sound like Zeed or Zed?

    Have you read Dan Brown's "Digital Fortress?" or Neal Stephenson's "Crytonomicon"? Seems the tcpa is a problem that goes all the way back to WW2. Wait till they adopt electronic voting- the Diebold system is laughably unsecured...

    --------> Somebody needs to initiate a "Z" or "Zed" poll and stick a knife in this thread...
