That's a clever marketing device which was more than likely modeled off of this site's hit count. The remove the most likely key to be left out by a person searching for this site (determined by elaborate studies) and buy the web address to take advantage.

I think they are just taking advantage of our intoxication.

I once missed a key stroke in the word inconvenience in an email to a client. I was apologizing for a mistake that caused a delay in an order and finished the email with the sentence "Sorry for the inconvenience." My spell checker caught it and in a hurry I clicked the "fix it" button, not realizing until it was to late that that the spell checker had changed it to "Sorry for the incontinence." and sent the email. Oops...

haha, I was just about to say that I did send an email to a customer that said that I was sorry for the incontinence. That made for an interesting reply from them.

Hard to beat my brother's error. As root in the top directory: rm -fR * tmp He meant rm -fR *.tmp That missing . cost him a lot of work.

[ that's forcibly remove every file, from every directory recursively, then destroy the directory tree. Then remove the file tmp ]
