Just exactly how do you pronounce "SysRq"?  It doesn't come up very
often in conversation, especially among DOS/Win users, so I don't know
if there's a standard.  I tend to pronounce it "siss-wreck" ("X has
completely locked everything!  If Ctrl-Alt-Backspace doesn't work, hit
Alt-Siss-Wreck-K!")  as an allusion to two things:

1: the wrong Alt-SysRq key combo can cause serious system wreckage
2: the right Alt-SysRq key combo can save your system from serious
wreckage

What does the community think?

Although I usually pronounce the name of SysRq as "Siss-Wreck",
I'm tempted to buck convention, and pronounce it as "Scissor-Queue" ;-)
