Nooooooooooooooooo!

Onlink is going through delays. I sympasithize (sp?) with Miah on the issue, and feel bad for him, too bad too. I'm just wondering, is this the end?

I think it's spelled sympathize? Not sure about the "z"

No. That's what you call a bastardisation of english. It's "Sympathise"

Actually it's "sympathise" that is the bastardization. The Oxford English Dictionary doesn't even list "sympathise" as a word. Although "sympathise" is used in the sample usage area of "sympathize". :)

Given that the Oxford English Dictionary agrees with Google I don't think you can make the "it's American English" argument. :)

The only person who knows the answer to this is Miah, and having spoken to him recently I can tell you that he's definately not in the sort of mood to be perusing the uplink forums. Likelihood is you won't get an aswer here.
