'Jə - 'ə'

Help Needed  - 
 
Does anyone know of a plain text dictionary with pronunciation I can pull down?

Would love to be able to just grep a wall of text for things with letter pairing vs pronunciation.

How do you pronounce acronyms?

Do you pronounce each letter as its parent word does, or do you follow rules of English and defined pronunciations?

For reference below, Fran would be Fran Drescher from the TV show The Nanny, and the acronyms:
GIF - Graphic Interchange Format
SCUBA - Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus
LASER - Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation

Acronyms are not words, therefore they are pronounced however popular opinion says. That is why the droid debate about gif. There is mixed popular opinion. It's a funny debate and as long as you don't take it seriously then yeah, fun. It's sorta absurd, though, if you take it serious.

Woot!
At the mall for one of the few times a year, and came across 128GB SanDisk USB3 for $25.

Thanks ASUS component support, for helping push me to find on my own the one thing I didn't check before.

So I CAN HAZ BIOS again =D
For some reason all USB2 hubs were not being powered until after I got part-way through booting the OS, which is slightly concerning when I eventually decide to install something different (or something goes wrong). Turns out the one USB3 hub was still working (or maybe only started working once I unplugged it and plugged it back in again?), and after trying to boot up without PSU switched on I finally have my computer back. . . . . after reinstalling grub.

I know this is peripheral to tech, but it sure uses a lot of them.

What ever happened to the interrobang‽ I'd certainly use it if I could access it easily.

So is my ISP being shitty, or can no one pull torrents right now?

Figured I'd throw out a line while I start the search myself.

My mom has an image sized to one page that she is trying to explode to 650% and print. I've managed to enlarge the image, but printing always forces it back down to fit on one page (massive DPI). I've also tried opening it in GIMP and exporting to PDF, but that again forces to one page.
Anyone know how one could enlarge an image to print?

Yup, looks like posterazor does what we're looking for. Just need to work out with her exactly how big to blow it.
