My attention has just been drawn
to (one of) my mistake(s) in English: during the years, I’ve often used the word “infamous” when I meant “famous”. Yeah, just the opposite meaning. Sorry for the confusion this may have caused – yeah, I know I should double-check everything I post, even to be absolutely sure about the meaning of words I use, as far as English usage is concerned. I only wish I had the time for that – which I severely lack, given that I’m working, experimenting and writing really hard.
I don’t really have the time to re-edit all
my articles cross-posted to the Web (several Windows Mobile boards). On my blog, I’ve fixed the most important ones (but still not all). Therefore, if you read an older article on a WM board that uses the word “in
famous” – I’ve definitely meant “famous” in all these cases.
Finally, if you spot repeated mistakes / misunderstandings like this (showing I use a word / expression in the totally wrong meaning), feel free to tell me, even in public (you don’t need to bother with private messages if they cause a lot of additional work). Don’t be shy. I certainly don’t get offended by these kinds of reports – after all, my mother tongue isn’t English and problem reports will certainly help in not making the same mistake again.
