I’ve never really wanted to take a cruise. Even less now. And now, the cruise lines are costing millions of dollars and not paying taxes. Fun stuff!

Aucontrary Proofreads

March 15, 2013 Leave a comment

Today, I’ll be proofing a post from Rene Ritchie, iMore’s Editor-in-chief.

Our first example actually contains 2 typos in one sentence:


See if you can spot them both. I’ll give you a hint. It is apparent that whatever Rene uses to author content does not have a spell-checker.

Next we have ‘an’ where we should have had ‘a’. A common problem as you are revising a post and reword something placing a word that starts with a consonant where there was a vowel before. Still, easily identified and fixed with a quick proofread before publishing. If only there was an editor to do that.


Finally, we have a sentence that I’m not really sure what it is supposed to be, but I am fairly certain that this is not what Rene was thinking he was communicating as he typed it.


That’s all for now. Stop back often, because I am sure there will be plenty more examples to come.

I’m SO EXCITED! I just won $800,000 Canadian dollars.  That’s gotta be at least $25 US dollars or something like that, right?

I know everyone is going to be JEALOUS when they find out that I won and THEY didn’t!

I love Dr Suess books. There is nothing more magical than reading them with a child.

Forget the Hopper, I have the Destroyer

So, the networks




with the Hopper from Dish Network.

Specifically, they are not happy that the service allows users to easily skip commercials.  I got a Replay TV (Actually, a Panasonic Showstopper PVR) in 2000 that I used until they pulled the “lifetime” channel guide a few years ago. I paid a fortune for that, we need to work on the definition of “lifetime” I guess. The Replay TV had a button on the remote that would jump forward 30 seconds.  Of course, Replay TV kind of flew under the RADAR, but it was a very handy feature when commercials came on.

My feedback on Donatos Web Site

October 6, 2011 Leave a comment

Wow. I don’t know where to start.  So, you pop up a box after I order asking if I want to tell you about it. I get a survey monkey web site tab. No survey, I have to sign up, and then it wants me to create a profile and tell it how much I watch movies and eat out, then asks me about the economy and barack obama. What does any of this have to do with pizza. I cancelled that and deleted my account, but I’m sure they won’t send me useless e-mail and other spam.  Thanks a lot for that. I know surveys are so hard to build on your own, that you decided to “outsource”, but maybe you could have chosen a site that doesn’t maliciously accost your customers.

Then, I come here to complain about that, and you make me supply name, e-mail address and mailing address.  I mean, it frickin’ says “Welcome back Todd  Whitehead” at the top of the page!!!!!!!  How do you not know my name????

I wanted to fill out the survey to tell you that your ads really suck. The coupon codes are tiny and in a font that was clearly not chosen for usability.  Go ahead and pick up one of your ads and tell me that the last digit of the coupon code for the $5 off online order isn’t barely distinguishable between a 3 and 5.

Oh well, I’m sure no one will actually read this, so I’ll just post it on my blog, FaceBook and Google+ where at least I’ll get the satisfaction of my friends sympathy.

Well, it is hailing here the day after Judgement Day. Maybe it really happened, but no one was worthy, so no one noticed.
