A quick informal survey for those TWs who are also graphics gurus:

When referring to .GIF files, do you pronounce it with a soft G (jiff) or
with a hard G (giff, similar to the sound of gift)?

I'm finding myself prone to the soft G, perhaps due to my predilection for
peanut butter...

Hard G. Your developers will increase their opinion of you.

Also, "SQL" is "sequel". ;)

Sometimes pronunciation is class-based. And hard G is what the geeks use. ;)
