Re: [PLUG] a question for our times

I just installed Truecrypt and encrypted a usb drive (as we all should).  When I was done, the Truecrypt button was marked DISMOUNT.

As far as I know, one dismounts a horse.  One unmounts (or umounts) a drive.

Must I have my local grammar nazi contact Truecrypt or is this acceptable use?

This is one of those issues that will likely annoy many. I note that the 3rd definition of the term from suggests that the folks at Truecrypt have a plausible argument.

to remove (a thing) from its mounting, support, setting, etc.: to dismount a picture.
to take (a mechanism) to pieces.
