That wud B GR8.

I wonder if you're trying to be sarcastic -- spelling out letters like B as 'be' is not exactly phonetic. I once tried explaining to a Briton how Finnish is a phonetic language, and you just read anything by pronouncing each letter as they are, which she mistook as spelling out.

Of course, while I'm being pedantic, you'd also need a thorn/theta for the 'th' sound...

Civilization, as we know it, will end sometime this evening. See SYSNOTE tomorrow for more information.
