Asterix and Asterisk

I spotted a great typo on a website I was editing this morning:

The end of the document refers to many web pages, the ones used in the Guidelines being marked with an asterix. (My emphasis)

That should, of course, have read “an asterisk”. Just for the record, here’s the difference:

Asterix and Asterisk

Which got me thinking. I think they should update these books, with titles like:

  • Tintin and the Distributed Denial of Service Attack
  • Tintin in Redmond
  • Asterix and the Chieftain’s Browser
  • Asterix in jQuery
  • etc.

What Tintin or Asterix titles would you like to see?
