So, I'm not so crazy after all.CompuServe used to distribute a graphics display program called CompuShow.
In the documentation for version 8.33 in the FAQ section, it states:
The GIF (Graphics Interchange Format), pronounced "JIF", was designed by CompuServe and the official specification released in June of 1987.
wow. harsh! We're so lenient in California. Tomato, tomahto, whatever. :rofl:A poor girl in our data training class said "dahtah", and the instructor jumped down her throat and told her to never pronounce it that way again. It's "DAY tah" It has become skewed though over the years, but back in the early 70's we only designed DAY tah circuits.

Pronunciation: Some English-speakers pronounce the acronym "GIF" with a plosive (as in the word "gift"). However, the creators of the file format pronounced the acronym as "JIF" during its unveiling presentation in the 1980s. Surveys reveal that around 70% of speakers prefer the plosive pronunciation. , which is consistent with the pronunciation of the individual words in the acronym.
