Sorry David, it's like fingernails on a chalkboard.


I worked at one place that did design work for the telecommunication industry (got the tail end of the meltdown) and used the Latin plural antennae for awhile.

The signature on the payroll check trumps the proper use and the sound of fingernails on the chalkboard.
