I thought this was great, so I'm posting it:

That is wonderful
The current phrase describing people who care about this stuff appears to be "grammar nazi." The negative connotations for the phrase are clear: this is fanatical geekery and normal people need not care. The above is a beautiful example of just why the textual representation of grammatical niceties is rather more than just the icing on the cake, however!
Back on topic: my mic arrived today. It's an old-fashioned-looking thing I can arrange and angle reasonably easily. It's not studio quality but is a little better than the tiny condenser microphones built into most of the kit most people use. I don't have a studio to work in but a brief experiment "testing, testing, 1,2,3" with a radio playing in the background didn't leave much evidence of background noise in playback. I'm sure I won't achieve perfection but will do my best to be "good enough"
Enough already. I still have to finish reading the book.
