Runs, Hits, Errors

Actually, this is just about the errors in this blog.

Currently, as of this post, many of the posts which were linking to audio or video no longer appear correctly. That’s what happens when the functionality of things change, or links move. I expect that to continue on into the future, though I will attempt to go back and re-link what can be re-linked.

It’s also interesting to look back and see posts which reveal how much we don’t know at the time.

And then there are just the errors I’ve noticed. I’ve already corrected one in which I mistook a picture which included my brother-in-law, Terry, as a picture of…me! (Weird.)

The latest error was yesterday’s post – which has already been fixed – which put the time of Sammy and Victoria’s engagement in 2014, rather than 2013.

According to the British site, The Phrase Finder, it was British poet, Alexander Pope, who wrote in 1711:

Ah ne’er so dire a Thirst of Glory boast,

Nor in the Critick let the Man be lost!

Good-Nature and Good-Sense must ever join;

To err is Humane; to Forgive, Divine.

An Essay on Criticism, Part II

While the last line is what we remember, I rather like the third line, too.
