Although those from Oz might try to claim the "down under" reference, LandzDown was actually derived by Team LandzDown as a play on words.  It is pronounced as "Lan's Down".  When referring to the site as "LzD", it would be pronounced "Ell-Zee-Dee".

Hope that helps. :rose:

What! what! I say, Old Bean. That's just not Cricket, don't you know! In jolly old Blighty it would be pronounced "Ell-Zed-Dee". Now, I'm just off for a quick jaunt in the old kite and if I don't prang it I'll be back at 4:00pm for tea and scones on the lawn. Spiffing, what? Tally Ho!  :breakkie:
