online-at/on-thy-net

This post is not about the latest Hansel Minutes podcast. But it is about a certain way of announcing URLs that has always confused me – until now. When Scott reads out a URL (for example, for a sponsor) he says “online at www….”. For some reason my brain has always processed this as “on-thy-net”, now, obviously that is completely insane but I noticed that Scott does it and so does Carl Franklin.

Must be an accent thing . . .
