Aight people-- er, poleop I mean--, it should be quite clear that I will almost never get around to updating the book of typos regularly, so I've decided to follow in Microsofts footsteps and just open source it. Very Happy
The Definitive Dictionary of Dan (note, there are no definitions, I just say 'definitive' to make it sound cool).
Wikipedia is pretty cool...

Everything bad gets filtered out really quickly anyways. Someone on the site probably just thought it was spam and deleted it.

I have seen completely innaccurate information added and then deleted in the spam of 5 minutes on that site.

And not everything is open source on that site - the topic on Israel is locked because of the lack of neutrality.

Good idea guys. Mabye you could put it on this site so you have control over it and "piss chuggers" wont erase it.
