Please excuse the typos

by Volker Weber

This is really embarrassing. I am experiencing some difficulties with correct spelling. It started with typos, then small grammar mistakes, and then I found myself typing a different word than the one I was thinking. Now it's gotten out of hand. Sometimes complete sentences are all wrong.

Here is an example. This is what I wanted to write:

And this is what my hands were typing:

So, will you please excuse my typos and just pretend they aren't there? Thank you!

And here I thought I was the only person with that issue...

Your words were magically "transformed" for you.

God, I am so happy, I am not alone.
I found a solution for me. I developed a very sophisticated nasty word scanner, runs on a pure Scale installation in my bath room. I uses a scanner that looks over my shoulders and a mouse trap. I found out, that despite of my age, I am still better in learning avoiding traps, than the average rat (ouch - see it works).

However, if we look at the measurable efficiency the second wording is superior... 4 words shorter (22%), 4 characters shorter (4.4%) and 1 sec less reading time (20%).

I guess this cannot be explained by a B Vitamin deficiency.
