Yeah, when I went to buy a SCSI Zip disk a few years ago when I was
living in Austria, I was surprised
to learn that they pronounce SCSI Es-Tseh-Es-I (in other words, exactly
as the individual letters are pronounced
in German.) In the US we say "scuzzy". I kept saying "Haben Sie ein
scuzzy Zip-Laufwerk?" and getting strange
I've not heard anyone pronounce ls "luss" before, though.
