comment Difference between “with”, “at” and “for” with a business title and a company name
Also "of" for unique (high-powered) business titles, such as "CEO of Motorola" ( bbc.co.uk/news/technology-23544430 ) and "chairman of The New York Times Company" ( nytimes.com/2013/08/08/business/media/… ).

@ Edwin Ashworth: It's common to anthropomorphise programs (processes) in computing.

comment Correct punctuation in song lyrics that aren't necessarily good English
Another approach is to add a comma etc where there is a natural pause in the melody, as lyricists often (but not always) fit the words to the meter of the melody.

comment Quoting prices informally
@MετάEd: I agree with Timwi that this question can stand sufficiently well without extra context, but if you or anyone else wish to know, I was unsure because I was taught that two pounds forty (pence) is correct though it's common to hear six foot two, instead of six feet two when asked for one's height.

Thanks, I've heard two pounds and forty pence but not two pounds and forty pence. I wonder how that and two pound forty pence came about.
