It should only take a few minutes if you’re the average HN commentator.

A HN commentator would never have made such a big in the first place. Duh. :D

Follow up, would it be “an HN” or “a HN”? eg hatche-en or atche-n or hacker?

As before I’m sure the worlds greatest linguist will also be here :)

Probably "an HN", as saying the letter "H" sounds like "ayy-ch" (in American pronunciation, at least), which has an initial vowel sound.

Right, but when I tried saying it in my head it seemed weird because my brains turn it into “an hacker news” :)

They could have built their own Group FaceTime in their mom's basement in a weekend. With blackjack and hookers!
