OK. For a moment there I thought the fuzziness might be associated with all the pubelicity about this error.

that's almost as good as the shirt my wife bought at the Virginia Tech book store when we returned for a college football game. Neither one of us caught the typo until someone pointed it out at the game.

"Virgina Tech"

she keeps it as a novelty now...

An outstanding college. It's my understanding that the entrance requirements are stiff. However, once in, the students really explore the field in depth.

Believe it or not, I once came across this exact typo in a textbook on information systems management. It was in the chapter on private encryption and pubic (sic) keys.

That's the problem with spellcheck. A word is a word is a word. There is still a place for human proofreaders!

No problem, Michael, looks like there are plenty more volunteers willing to take up the slack...

My favorite, though, still remains "Well I'm a graduate of Texas A&M, and I'm here to tell you that ain't nobody gonna get electrocuted today unless you properly connect those two wires there!"

They sent out letters and tweets apologizing for the mistake.

Quote:
“As soon as we realized the mistake, everybody went into overdrive and we went to work to reprint it.” All grads will be sent new copies of the program.
“Graduates have already received apology letters from the dean,” says Binford, as well as an apology tweet, which misspells egregious.

Well, maybe, but I'd say this thread really has more of a curly theme.
