I apologize in advance, but my American English lips cannot pronounce your last name. In any case, its good that you were are to get parole from Europe, to work at an English half-way house. I mean, heh, "game studio". ;)

"when I got my hands on a Radeon 9800 card." Accidentally set the microwave to boil my cup of tea for 98 mins and 00 secs after reading that..not fully recovered from those 3d mark days I suppose.

The closest we Americans can get is Shep-ahn-chick. American English lacks some of the phonemes found in most other languages. And every other syllable is unstressed, and unstressed English vowels all go to the schwa sound ("uh"). So most americans would pronounce it thus: "SHEP uhn CHICK". Yes, we will continue to slaughter foreign languages, and anything else that gets in our way! ;)
