Typos on a huge scale

Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on are updated regularly over the years (see updates page).

My website is sooooo big — I could do a whole series of posts that start this way — when I find the kind of typo that eludes spellcheck, I will now always do a full site search for it, and I almost always turn up several more examples of the same error.

Today’s example: “a least” instead of “at least.” There were five other occurrences of this error scattered around the site.

When you have way over a million words, and you’re always changing some of them, this kind of thing is going to happen quite a bit. 😜

This is the MICROBLOG: small posts about interesting stuff that comes up while I’m updating & upgrading dozens of featured articles on Follow along on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS. Sorry, no email subscription option at this time, but it’s in the works.
