This reminds me of when I was getting an X-ray a few months ago and I struck
up a conversation with the radiologist who turned out to be an ex-computer
programmer so he asked what language I was using so I said "Haskell" and he
said something like "Oh yeah Pascal I know that..."
Perhaps we need a tutorial on how to pronounce the word "Haskell" so that it
doesn't sound like "Pascal" :-) (eg "Hiskeeeell")
