If you feel like you can't help it and need to post typos, I don't mind, but let's keep them all in one thread. Just list the Chapter and page number and the error here.

Re: The Typos Thread
Excellent! The only one I'd take issue with is "ifsie" which I've heard people actually use in talks to refer to their inline if statements (perhaps with a different spelling, though) but a quick Google search shows that's not a common thing, so I'll pull it. All words are made up, it just depends on whether or not enough people use them.

Re: The Typos Thread
Oh, I have no problem at all with your usage; I had never heard it called such, but it was catchy. Just quote it.

Re: The Typos Thread
I think these are fixed, Steve, and that we just haven't had a MEAP update recently, but I'll double-check.

Page 29: figure 1.11 caption. Should it read "magnifying glass" not "hourglass"?
Love the book so far.
