Words from MSDN event

I learned some things about pronounciation today. Some acronyms are spelt out, and others are turned into words.

WSDL is pronounced "Wizzdull".
WSE is pronounced "Wizzy".
UDDI is NOT pronounced "Uddy", but as spelt.
ASMX is pronounced "Azumex".

Best of all is WSE-WSDL, which is of course "Wizzy-wizzdull".

I also came across some new words:

Performant
Assistive
Idempotent
Eviscerate
