Leasey only spotted one mistake this morning! But she didn’t spot my misspelling “Moroccan”. Despite the date, the last PooterGeek entry was mainly written on the evening of the 8th of December.
For those who care about such things, the software that runs this ‘Blog, Movable Type, attaches a time-stamp the first time I save any material to the system. Even if the bulk of an entry’s text was written on the Thursday, if I had noticed something on the preceding Monday and saved a link to the system then, then that’s the date that goes on the final published text. I can and do change the automatic date, for example when I am adding an old pre-Movable Type entry to the archive or when the automated time-stamp is hugely misleading.
UPDATE: When I add to change an entry significantly after its first publication, I mark it with the phrase “UPDATE” in capital letters.
“Leasey spotted only one mistake”, surely!
Note the above post and wish that your dad had been an English teacher too.
