comment How is SQL pronounced?
This is not entirely correct. "Es queue el" IS standard. In the SQL standard, the American National Standards Institute says that the official pronunciation is "es queue el." Anything else is considered non-standard; common, yes, but still slang.

comment “Today in history”
*I* would say "On this day in 2008," or more informally "Two years ago today..." But, like above, if someone said "Today in 2008," it's understandable but sounds a bit off to me.
