    I had a Ceptor, finally came out and told me it was Trans.

    We really have to learn to accept all types.:)

    I drive an Ford Interceptor. I transmit from the Interceptor. Maybe it is a transceptor?

    Destinated seems ok because we all say it, for comedic effect.

    Orientated, though, is like nails on chalkboard to me. Fortunately, don't hear it much in North America.

    I don't because, like you said, it's like nails on a chalkboard.

    75 ohm balanced line is still available? I'd better ask Google.

    Nope. It now identifies as 75 ohm unbalanced coaxial cable, terminated with gender-neutral connectors.

    Get with the times!

    'Destinate, ' though archaic, is a dictionary word; and it is a verb; meaning that 'destianted' would be perfectly valid.

    The only problem is, it isn't defined as commonly used. Correctly used, this would be more appropriate:

    'Woe to you Man, it is detinated that thou wilt die.'
