However I do not dislike it as much as this term. Synch. That makes me batty. To me it is "sync speed" not "synch speed". Synch to me describes something simple like "moving that piano over was a real synch". Not sure how synch is spelt when used in that term. My mind always pronounces the h like in "lunch" when reading synch. It must be is a correct term as it shows no spelling error. Still bugs me - a lot.
Sorry for going off topic. Did not think this deserved a thread of it's own.
"sync" or "synch" are both just attempts at abbreviation. The real word is "synchronization" So you can see where the 'h' comes from.
The other word you are looking for is "cinch". The literal meaning is pulling together cords or straps. The connotation is something that is simple or easy to do.
