    I may be wrong but, as in psychotic.

    I think the owner is Cy pronounced Si.

    So Cy-cotic. Get it.

    I’m sat in Taiwan at the moment, whilst everyone else who came in our group is having ill-advised naps cos they is tired.

    I am tired, but if I sleep now, it’ll take me another day to get over my jetlag.

    So I’m playing on the free wifi in the hotel. Sorry. Keeping up to date.

    Just had 21hrs of pencil scribble “designing” 🙂

    Cotic = as in LanguedOC
    “Coetick” – the vowel “eau”

    tick / tique …either a joke, or the difference between English and French i sounds

    LOL (please say that was a joke)

    A ‘street urban type’ colleague (in a bike shop) once convinced a customer that Dura-Ace was pronounced Dur Achee.

    ‘.. naaa bruv, it’s not pronounced Dura-Ace it’s Dur achee’ *walks toward the counter holding Dura-Ace boxes shaking his head.
    ‘Oh.. ok umm… have you got the *pauses Durachee erum chain to go with that’

    I nearly spat my tea out and had to run into the back in fits.

    The nickname thing ^up there is correct. Cycotic. Imagine the fuss if I’d have spelt it Chotic like it is in psychotic? Oh, and the etimology of it is a silly uni nickname that sounded like a good idea seeing as Turner (my surname) had already been ‘somewhat’ claimed. Oddly enough, David is my middle name.

    I’ve heard northerners say

    coe- tic

    but they would probably say psy- coe- tic as well.

    Nope, they’d pronounce it “nor-mal”
