Error Report

January 27th, 2005 (10:59 pm)

I've just got an e-mail from Herb Sutter thanking me for correctly pointing out an error in C++ Coding Standards, which has just been announced as a Jolt Award finalist.

Shame it's a boring typo correction (the one on page 141) rather than a substantive one, but woohoo! all the same.

Herb Sutter looks uncannily like Lord Lucan.

Still, well done for getting credited for correcting a non-technical error in a technical book.

Yeah, it would have been more satisfying if it was a "real" error. Still, I'm quite chuffed, even if fairly unjustifiably.

Surely Lord Lucan is older than that?
