We always say it in office as Skirra (pronounced like Skipper) but most people say Seera or Sirra

That's how we'd pronounce in the Ph but somehow I thought it was "See-rah"
Thanks for clearing that up. :)

Ashley wanted to call it Cirrus after the cloud type, but that .com was taken so he swapped a few letters about

I thought it was pronounced Sky-rah... (Like in the sky is the limit) :D

I'm still a little bit skeptical about C3 being right for me, but the latest blog post has me hopeful. I'm probably going to subscribe for the first year and see how it goes. I think I'll be happier when the desktop version comes out.

The tone around here does seem to have changed. I've been critical of C3 recently, but I like to think I'm open minded and reasonable. Some people can't be reasoned with. It doesn't seem they would be happy with any answer they got.

So far I'm very impressed how quickly the bugs are getting fixed in C3. I forgot how good that felt. It feels like we'll get the support we need to enable us to build the games we want to make.

(Still hate Chrome.)

Scirrus actually ;) sci- as in the latin root for knowledge (as in science), plus the cirrus cloud. Couldn't get the .com domain though, so ended with Scirra. Think that looks/sounds better anyway!

I just assumed that it was always pronounced "SKEER-ah" and not "SEER-ah". Then I started to doubt myself when I saw some youtube vids pronouncing it the 2nd way. Glad to know to proper pronunciation now. Also cool to learn how the name originated. :D
