Pronounciation of 'char'

From Bjarne Stroustrup's C++ FAQ:

How do you pronounce "char"?
"char" is usually pronounced "tchar", not "kar". This may seem illogical because "character" is pronounced "ka-rak-ter", but nobody ever accused English pronounciation and spelling of being logical.

All these years, I've pronounced it incorrectly...
