* The German version of Twilight is called "Bis(s) zum Morgengrauen", with "Bis" meaning "Until" and "Biss" meaning "Bite". "Bite/Until Dawn". Please note that, while "Bis zum Morgengrauen" makes complete sense, "Biss zum Morgengrauen" is very painful Grammar indeed.

to:

* The German version of Twilight is called "Bis(s) zum Morgengrauen", with Morgengrauen"; "Bis" meaning "Until" means "until" and "Biss" meaning "Bite". "Bite/Until Dawn". Please means "bite". Thus it's "Until Dawn" or ""Bite till dawn". But note that, while "Bis zum Morgengrauen" makes complete sense, "Biss zum Morgengrauen" the latter of the two translations in German is very painful Grammar indeed.bad grammar and actually a very botched translation.

** Well, "see octothorpe" doesn't roll off the tongue.
*** "See hash" then.

*** Parodied in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', with the languages ~ATH (til death), ^CAKE (caret cake), and DIS* (dis asterisk).
* The Bittorrent client "μTorrent", which we're supposed to pronounce "uTorrent". Geek options: muTorrent for the linguistics geek; microTorrent for the science geek (the program was so named because it is one of the smallest and least processor-intensive Torrent programs available).

* The most popular magazine about computers and tech of the Netherlands was renamed to Computer!Totaal in the 90s, which made many people write in in protest that it was a terrible choice because "You can't use special characters in a title!". Ironically, in recent years the website has become more important than the paper magazine and the URL for the website excludes the ! - even though that is considered a safe character to use in an URL - so the controversial bang was weeded out in the end.
