This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Sure, there are several I commit so frequently I had to teach my software to autocorrect them for me. E.g. that "chnage" is really an abbreviation for "change", that "prodcution" environments are really in production, and that all those things I said were "disbaled" are in reality disabled.
Have you thought about surprising Kathy with a name change for her birthday, something like Kirstie, maybe?
I've been having the capital second letter issue recently too, but it seems to be only with my own first name.
My other favorite happens when I'm typing strings of letters that alternate hands. I get the right hand letters in the right order and the left hand letters in the right order, but I sometimes start with the wrong hand. e.g. "name" is a right-left-right-left word. If you start with the wrong hand, it comes out "anem".
And lastly, I seem to put spaces one character too late, turning something like "in the" into "int he". This happens almost exclusively when "the" is the second word. "ist he" and "witht he" aren't too bad, because the spell checker catches "ist" and "witht", but "int he" slips through.
(Edit: in fact, the first time I posted this, I accidentally left an instance of "int he" in the second paragraph.) [ August 09, 2007: Message edited by: Ryan McGuire ]
No one has described the thing I tend to do, which is that alternate trains of thought sometimes "leak". If I'm typing very quickly something about Java garbage collection, it might occur to me that I need to call the tax collector, and the words "real estate" might just appear on the page in front of me. Kind of like a Freudian slip, but with conscious, rather than subconscious thoughts.
I am used to typing "not" instead of "now". I don't know why I do this, but I keep doing it over and over. Once in the email to everyone I wrote "The change is not ready for testing." instead of "The change is now ready for testing."
the new netscape navigator recognizes this bug and automatically corrects this when you type in the url. saves you from going to samchar.com when you meant to go to samachar.com(hindi for news) [ August 05, 2007: Message edited by: Amitabha Batranab ]

I was failed to find what did you typed wrong. After reading 2 to 5 times only i found what did you typed wrong. Always I am reading correct!! the wrongly typed one. :roll:
