Thu 9 May 2002's Blog


Don't worry I'm not selling myself cheap. Just an example of an abused apostrophe. Thanks to Czeslaw for the link. Also to John Haywood for reminding me of the endless arguments I had with my colleagues at HSBC. Oh, they were the days. Their argument:

Shut it Jake, the apostrophe in FAQ's is to denote the contraction of the word 'Questions'! Stop bothering me!

My counter-argument:

Well, why is it not F'A'Q's then!?

I won in the end if I remember rightly ;o)

Rob Porter mailed me yesterday with a great idea for an article. Using the iNotes file-upload ActiveX object. He's already done the majority of the work but I wondered if anybody had done it as well. What did you find?

Thanks to Owen Butler, Lea LoBlue and Roger Harper for using the comments form productively. A refreshing change to the average day's (note apostrophe) posts.

[Edit]: Forgot to thank Mike "ADSL" Golding for burning me a copy of R6 PR2. The fun I'm going to have tonight....
