Seems with the change from Telecom to Spark, a number of companies (including Spark themselves) have taken to search and replace to update their websites and documenation.  This has resulted in quite a number of them now using the word "Sparkmunications".  :)

That was clever. At least it'll be an easy fix.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Yeah, "replace everywhere" works better then expected. There is very good checkbox called "words only" for that :)

Hah, what a clposterioric example of mass-replace gone wrong.

Wouldn't have happened if they did a search/replace for "Telecom " with "Spark "

It's a great word and is growing on me now.  I reckon they should leave it and try using it more.  :)  Quick, someone trademark it...
