WYSIWYG real life

On a corporate call today talking about executive cost reporting at a Fortune 500 company an the presenter used "wysiwyg" pronounced 'wizzeewig' for reports going to the executive board. Totally random I know, but first time I have ever heard used functionally correct outside of a wargame table. And now I am off I level my corporate slave character, almost to corporate schmuck! Cheers

wysiwyg was originally an old word processor acronym before it was applied to wargames.  Originally in the dos days your word processing was a text file that you put formatting around then did prints to see if they came out properly.  Can't remember what the first one to use it was called, but the acronym stuck and filtered it's way out to everything....
