HellO??!!! ZDooM isn't doom, though it is still free. I regaurd doom as the iwad, not the program that runs it. Otherwise, we could call Word and Internet Explorer and DooM Builder then Windows.

I'm liking the sounds of that...

Well... When it comes to the pronunciation, I guess there is about as many versions as there are languages on this globe of ours. In the kingdom of Sweden, I guess the name we use could be described as the letter "s" infront of a "@" followed by an "a", giving "s@aDoom". There is a flow to it anyway.

I agree with Enjay. Go for Susan.
Skip the silly Doom part.

hmm... wasnt the Zee/Zed doom discussion also on the old message boards?
and on the name issue, i think Randy Doom would be best, although that makes it sound like some kinda porno game

I remember a conversation here at one point(can't remember the thread) with the EXACT same question about "zee" or "zed". I like to say it z-doom. If you want me to post a sound of me saying it for some utterly useless reason then I will :P

Zee versus Zed on the old phorum? Yup, and not just once either.

Softie thinks Susan's a good idea! Heh, if I could be bothered I'd start a campaign. A campaign ultimately doomed (ahem) to fail, but a campain none the less.

(The campaign's dead Jim.)
