I know there are a ton of exceptions to English, but if I remember grammar
from grade school (a few years ago for all of us) don't you generally use
the short vowel sound when there is a double consonant following?  As in the
words suffix, affix, annex.  Words without a double consonant would have the
long sound, codex, latex, and remix.

If only my teacher could see me now,
Mark
