Would Builder/Plumber be
'Builder slash plumber' or 'builder stroke plumber'
sounds like a line from ropey 70's Swedish porn flick where the narrator speaks in an Arnie accent.
but I don't feel it's an issue we need to get all dogmatic about.
what the fuck are you talking about you total moron? anyone who says slash is the lowest possible form of scum known to man and can rot stroke burn in the eternal fires of hell as far as I'm concerned.
people who say 'stroke' are worse than Hitler! I normally don't believe in the death penalty but this is just one thing too far!
Oh my god it gets me so riled. I just want to punch you and your kind in the balls so much! Do it my way!
virgule, diagonal, stroke, forward slash, oblique dash, slant, separatrix, scratch comma, over, slak, whack.
wikipedia tells me lots of things. Start calling it a separatrix and confuse people.
I wanted to say solidus, but a solidus and a slash are not the same :(
probably to avoid the single entendre
The rest of you should feel free to amuse yourselves in this thread.
But how do you determine a back slash from a forward slash?
\ - leans back
If you needed to specify, then you would modify slash/stroke with the appropriate direction.
I probably would just say "slash". Huh.
I KNEW everyone would start thinking that as soon as I mentioned Live & Kicking, so I did a bit of research. She's been DJing on Heart and Capital FM. From April the 29th onwards, she'll be co-hosting a show on Radio 2 with Alan Carr called 'Going Out With Alan Carr'.
good work :)
"From the 25th April 2009 BBC Radio 2 announced a new weekend schedule which featured Emma presenting a Saturday show from 6-8pm alongside comedian Alan Carr called Going out with Alan Carr."
She also runs restaurant businesses " “Star Bags” which creates the perfect ‘goody bag’ for children’s parties; and “Star Grub” – boxes of children’s party food to order. Forbes also designs various celebrity charity parties, and food product presentations".
Who the fuck updates it with stuff like that? Good grief.
don't beat yourself up about it
So just say 'slash'. John Peel tied himself in knots over this for no good reason.
A backslash is so named to make it clear you are using an unusual slash. Only a complete dribbling moron would have issues with this terminology. It would be like getting into a car telling someone to drive forward.
pocketmouse, you look taller
that'll do me. bye.
