Greetings,

I think it is QinetiQ. I have sometimes have a little problerm with speeling but this takes the biskit. There are 2 "U"s missing and we all most remember the mnemonic "U after Q unless you are an advertising executive", it was drummed into me at skool. I don't think it actual means anything acronym wise making it a made up word, made up by some brain dead but probably groteskly overpaid suit blah blah blah. I could go on.

PS, It's good having a rant about spelling and grammar 'cos one can get away with camping up the spelling of a word one truly does not know and can't be ars*d to go and get the dictionary to find out. But, have you ever considered what a useless do***ent a dictionary is 'cos if you can't spell it you are unlikely to find it.

You are correct in what you say , I have corrected my spelling, too long reliant on a spell checker, WinetiO came about because Q & W are adjacent keys and I hit the wrong one, but should have checked before submitting.
Regards
Tim
