I’m a developer living in Scotland. I work for an international IT Services company, with my main experience and current role being in the Oil & Gas sector. I also code PHP, JavaScript, a little Ruby, and I'm hoping to learn Clojure, Haskell and Python next. I've got a reasonable amount of experience in infrastructure, servers, and desktops. I'm fairly platform neutral, having used Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, and WebOS over the years. Outside of work I have a passion for gadgets, technology, and geek culture.

    No , its not pronounced Jif. Go back to Jreat Britain, Jreenland or Jreece, or whatever country you learned to pronounce i that way.

      According to the creator of the file format it is. But who is he to tell you otherwise…

      I guess this means the whole world has been mis-pronouncing George, giraffe, gentle, geography etc all along… So today I learned something else it seems!
