After trying to catch up on the .Net Rocks shows (great shows for .Net deveopers – you learn things you didn’t even know you needed to know, and some things you didn’t need to know) I couldn’t believe it when the winner of their latest competition was from Tyne & Wear. Only problem is they had no idea how to pronounce Wear! So they said it like Where! I laughed so much it hurt :)
And for those who don’t know, its pronounced like were, or weir (as in a step in a river, which its named after, two rivers here in the north east of England called the River Tyne and the River Wear.
