Thanks for the advise to go brand name. Did so, it's on its way. Did I get those i-t-s es right?

Which brings me to, read it out loud with another person! Going through some papers I saw the original graph which turned my head around about proofing. It said 2 people proofing in series (first I proof alone, then you proof alone) are not even close to as good as 2 people taking turns reading out loud while the other follows the text. This has been enshrined in extreme or agile programming where pairs of programmers work together.

I think the factor difference was 1000, meaning, dual proofing is 1000 times more accurate than serial proofing.

A sort of meta-meta-analysis on paired programming. It's meta squared because they cite meta-analysis studies along with a bunch of garden variety studies.

R, I enjoyed the few times I've coded alongside a colleague.

D, book publishing has changed a great deal since I participated in a writer's group during the 1980s. For example, back then publishers would not accept a photocopy of a manuscript -- you'd have to submit the original.
