SCSI /n./ [Small Computer System Interface] A bus-independent
standard for system-level interfacing between a computer and
intelligent devices. Typically annotated in literature with
`sexy' (/sek'see/), `sissy' (/sis'ee/), and `scuzzy'
(/skuh'zee/) as pronunciation guides -- the last being the
overwhelmingly predominant form, much to the dismay of the
designers and their marketing people. One can usually assume that
a person who pronounces it /S-C-S-I/ is clueless.
