Word of the Day

Writing release notes can be an unpleasant task, because you have to own up to bits of the software that didn't work. (Even worse is owning up to bits that still don't).

Today I had cause to use the word serializability, which brought comments of "what a horrible word" from one of my coworkers. It seems I am not the only developer with a sense of duty towards The Queen's English. Unfortunately, we were not able to come up with alternatives, except of course for the phrase "ability to be serialized" which I didn't think was any better.
