You mean "Touché" (while we're being picky!)
Oops. Indeed I do.

Yes! And now you will know it forever. It's actually quite straightforward as soon as you know a few examples.
Fewer goes with countable nouns, less goes with non-countable nouns

Cars you can count (one car, two cars, three cars, etc) so it has to be "fewer cars".
Traffic (for example) you can't count (one traffic, two traffics, three traffics doesn't work) so it's "less traffic".

I reckon "uni's" is perfectly acceptible. An apostrophe can mark an abbreviation, like 'phone and 'though. So uni' is right, and uni's is right too.
I was going to say that.

I'm trying to think whether I use 'uni's', I think I do but I think I use it as an apostrophe of possession.

personally it is know and no being confused that gets me. LOL strange how certain things grate on certain people.

I can live with the occasional misplaced apostrophe and mis-spelling but what I really hate are 10 line posts in text-speak. One person wants to look cool and 200 people have to go into translation mode to understand what the hell they are on about. u no wot i meen m8?
