Typo patrol at the PDC


You can find the following typographical errors in the Big Room at the PDC:

  • Intergrated
  • Precison
  • Personel

If you can locate all three of them and catch me at the PDC (say at the Fundamentals Lounge or at the Ask the Experts table), I'll award you a prize of um (rummaging through my bag) how about a retractable network cable? (Or an autographed business card? But then again, anybody can get one of those just by asking for one.)

    At the Penny Arcade Expo, I was vastly amused that they managed to misspell "Freeplay".

    Twice. On the same page. Two different ways.

    In a header that was duplicated three times.

    Doesn’t anyone hire proofreaders anymore?

    AS I tell people, I’m not cool because I have Charles Petzold’s business card in my wallet — I’m cool because he has mine in his. (*)

    (*) Full disclosure — It was about 13 years ago that I gave him my card, and about a year later that he demostrated that he still had it in his wallet (It’s a cool looking bussiness card), so he probably isn’t still carrying it around……

  3. Yeah, whatever says:

    Poofreaders aren’t all they’re cacked up to be.

  4. Eric says:

    Umm… I thought "personel" was just fine… but that is understandable because 1) I’m not a native English speaker and 2) it looks almost as “personal”, the Spanish word for the same thing.

  5. Loz says:

    Typographical errors or mere spelling errors?

  6. slapout says:

    Can I have an autographed business card? :-)

  7. Loz: The first two are probably typographical; the third could be either a typo or a spelling error.

    slapout: All you have to do is stop by the Fundamentals Lounge or the Ask the Experts table.

    holy pronouns batman.

    If you want to see horrendous spelling errors visit a typical English city/village with large signs for tourists or metal plates with historical data. Errors galore e.g.

    * at pub near Lincoln Cathedral: "Family’s welcome"

    * signboard outside St John’s college Oxford requests "no radio’s"
