How did I miss this one in peer review?

I have never really understood why the PC at work crashes all the time and this probably does not answer the question really. I have a Mac at home that is far more stable.

Can I make one point on spelling. In the last sentence "However this is not full proof because the crash may bring the operating system down with it.", full proof should read foolproof.

Excellent.

Sorry this one caused you problems Ideno.

As a sub myself, I know what it's like getting an entry like this, all you can do really is chack the spelling and hope that the content is correct.

For some reason, I seem to get a lot of entries about books from long dead authors. Go figure. smiley - smiley

Checking the content was the one thing that I couldn't do! My only excuse is that I was baffled by science by the time I got to that bit. smiley - blush

I'm the same with articles about books by dead authors. I haven't read them and have to assume that the content is correct. I just check it for house rules, spelling, etc.

Well, that's surely maintaining the spirit of the original guide mark 1 - 'containing much that is hypocraful, or at least wildly inaccurate' he said, paraphrasing...smiley - laughsmiley - rofl
