Yup. I’m that guy. The one responsible for the missing hyphen. I’ve been debugging my code. I have a relatively simple action in front of me that is misbehaving. Turns out, I was missing a closing parenthesis. Like Mariner 1, it was a simple mistake with a catastrophic impact…well, nothing blew up on me. I’m just behind schedule for what I wanted to accomplish today.
I’ve always cited the period instead of a comma as causing a space probe to miss its mark but apparently the typo never caused any dreadful results.trackback
