We sometimes talk on the telephone with various technology companies, and their representatives.
The people on the telephone fall into one of two camps: technical and non-technical. Nobody, however, seems to be sure exactly how to pronounce the abbreviation “MySQL”.
The people who made and host MySQL have been quite clear about this. It is pronounced “my ess queue ell” however, some people pronounce it “my sequel” which can lead to confusion on the telephone when a person who has not used option A, is talking to a person using option B.

Leave a comment below with your chosen pronunciation, for nothing other than a scientifically inaccurate straw poll.
