BBC Homepage Beta

It's officially announced: a beta of the new BBC Homepage is online. Curiously, the Brits pronounce "beta" as beat-uh. Drives me up a wall.

They also pronounce "router" as root-er. In some parts of the US, "rooter" is a slang term for "pig", but it's also a slang term for "sex" (more common in Australia, I believe). I've difficulty keeping a straight face whenever someone refers to a root-er, but then, I've been known to pinch a fag from time to time.
