15 JulA reader suggests the “7.5 caliber” tank round is probably really 75mm — and looking at WWII articles, I’m inclined to agree: Deutsche Welle surely got it wrong; 7.5 caliber would be around 190mm, which is awfully large for a WWII tank. And weird: I know I took the first C out of “Actchison County” (and even checked to see if there were any more), yet there it is still. >:-(None.
8 JulThe repeated words in the H.U. are fixed (and so is the link). Plus, I can’t believe I failed to close the “blockquote” on the Challenge story, which screws up the margins for the rest of the issue….None.
1 JulI have the incorrect word order: “…in a signed confession that at age 18….” Also, the “Florida Carpool” incident was on Interstate 95, not 85.None.
24 JunWeird: the bottom of the Honorary Unsubscribe got cut off:

  • This Entry in the Archive: Hanabi-ko (OK to share link)
  • Plus, Farewell to James Gips, a professor (of computer science and information systems) at Boston College, the co-inventor and developer of EagleEyes and Camera Mouse, technologies that helped people with severe disabilities use computers. He died June 10 at 72.
  • And So Long to Kazuo Kashio, co-founder (with three brothers) and 27-year president of calculator/camera/watch/etc. manufacturer Casio, dead in Tokyo June 18 from pneumonia at 89.
  • Honorary Unsubscribe Archive
None.

PLEASE Read This Before Using the Form:

  • Please don’t submit an error already included above! (Obvious? Nope: I constantly get reports that are already listed.)
  • Useful Reports: Actual errors in stories, URLs, or other things that matter to readers.
  • Non-Useful Reports: Typos in reader letters or ads. Such are not my error!
  • Honorary Unsubscribe errors are not listed here; its archive is kept up-to-date with any changes or corrections. If you find something not already corrected there, feel free to use the form below to report it.

Sorry this all sounds really grumpy, but all I’m really trying to do is avoid literally hundreds of reports saying the same thing. Thus: Thank You for your useful reports!
