Topic: OT: "Read Receipt"... (12 msgs / 198 lines)
1) From: Sean Cary
As in you check the box and ask for a Read Receipt of an e-mail you sent...
Is it pronounced:
REED -
or
RED -
Big argument here in the G-6 - I say "REED" the knuckle dragging
Assistant Ops O says "RED"...no pressure to vote my way.
Votes?
Sean
You'd think Marines in Iraq would have more important things to worry
about - I guess this is a good sign!

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
I always thought they were called return receipts. I vote "REED". But 
does it prove the recipient "RED" it?
Sean, may I send you a post for a bit of way off topic discussion?

"reed" is the correct pronunciation.  it is a reed receipt to let the 
sender know that the message has been "red".  Sean has it right...

I have always "assumed" that a "read receipt" is placed in past tense
pronoustacation; i.e. "RED".
But, OTOH, it gets sent as you are opening the message, so that has a
definite present tense feel about it, too.
i!
Hopefully, this decision will be the hardest one you have to make today.

50 ish...to leave Fallujah, lots of scuttlebutt going around as to the
actual date, hope to be home in NC with the family before Valentines.
Seems a long way off, but I got here in Jul, so it is a short time to
go compared to what I have done already.
Getting tough around the holidays...my good friend here just left on
emergency leave due to his father in law dieing...kind of puts an
extra damper on things.

Sean,
You must be wearing that short timers chain around your wrist by now.
Hell of a way to have to take leave, really tough on everyone in the
family.  Never a good time - but this has got to be the worst time of
the year.  A guy wishes there was something he could do that would
help, but ...
Be careful, keep good track of yourself.
