Folks,

I've noticed two interesting trends lately. People complaining that
their figures are smarter than than brains, and more typos
in my own posts than I think reasonable. (Even extending to
web page articles.) It seems more is involved here than would
at first appear.

If you need a diversion, here is an interesting article by
Ed Yong on how people actually spot typing mistakes.

of-spotting-mistakes-while-typing/

Cheers,

David

My goodness! This is exactly what I am talking about!
"Figures" instead of "fingers".

Can anyone recommend a good brain food. :-(

Cheers,

David

Maybe I need a better mental hearing aid. :-(
