comment What do you call it when it's not raining, but the atmosphere causes everything to be wet?
Being "muggy" doesn't "cause everything to be [visibly] wet" either (in Britain).

comment “Referer” or “referrer”
I agree. "Referer" (3 Rs) implicitly refers to the HTTP Request Header of the same name. Using "Referrer" (4 Rs) in this context (as some still do unfortunately) actually becomes confusing, since you then need to make a special case for when you actually write the code, which increases the chance for error.

comment What do you call a person who is very fussy about weather?
@Arkamis: Whilst us "Brits" might like to "talk about the weather", we don't necessarily complain about it. "Old people" on the other hand do little else but complain about it!

@APrejean: I think if someone is "depressed in the Summer/Winter" they are just "depressed" ;)

comment Singular of “dice”
To be honest, although I've "always" known that technically the singular is "die". The usage of "dice" for both singular and plural in the spoken language is far more common in my experience. (Southern England)

comment How to pronounce “80x86”, “Linux 2.6”, and “Figure 3-1”?
In that case, how you would pronounce "80x86" is dependent on the subject, not specifically the English language.

comment How to pronounce “80x86”, “Linux 2.6”, and “Figure 3-1”?
Is "80x86" an arithmetic expression? ie. "80*86", or literally the characters as given? The context could alter how it is said.

comment Are “unestimated” and/or “non-estimated” correct English?
either "estimated" nor "not estimated" - shouldn't that be "or", not "nor"?

comment Too many “and”s? Is it grammatically correct?
@BillFranke: I'm curious, which search engine suggests "career" when searching for "carer"? Having tried both google.co.uk (which I wouldn't have expected the suggestion) and google.com, even when logged out in incognito mode I cannot trigger this suggestion?

comment Too many “and”s? Is it grammatically correct?
@DavidSchwartz: Isn't "carer" or "caregiver" dependent on the locale? In the UK, "carer" is correct. According to my (British) English Dictionary, "caregiver" is a North American term?
