I don't know if it's an error or not, but my kindle edition version doesn't have page numbers (or the ability to move to a particular page). I think I emailed the mobi to my kindle email account but can't recall for sure.--Bill Wake

I believe the word "wait" in the following sentence should instead be "await".
"Any number of surprises and adventures wait you (including bugs)."

In section 2.7 the phrase "off-tangent" appears. Using "off track" or another pithy variation of "off on a tangent" might convey the idea more clearly as "off-tangent" is somewhat dubious in its acceptance as a valid expression.

The intention of the following sentence is ambiguous:
"Finally, Boris is likely to stumble over issues related to newer technologies."
In the context of Boris' persona, it seems unlikely he would "stumble over" issues related to newer technologies. To me, that suggests he would uncover an issue and have trouble rectifying it. More likely, it seems the intent of this sentence would be better expressed by replacing "over" with "across".
"Finally, Boris is likely to stumble across issues related to newer technologies."
This sentence now suggests that Boris is likely to be one of the first users to identify an issue in newer technologies because he is on the cutting edge and thus likely to be among the first to adopt the technology.--Adam Lomas

This is not an error that comes from the book. I think it's more of a problem that comes from integrating different programs which uncover problems in programming languages.
Chapter: Exploring When There is No User Interface.
When I open the file in Firefox I surprisingly get:
I think it is notable that the result is in the same order as written in the editor.
But when I fix it to more readable code:
It gets right:
How can this happen? Can’t the language handle scattered code or is there something odd with this editor or am I, which I think would be excessive to say, violating the code?
Maybe there should be a codeline checker or something that prevents things like this to happen, or am I way off?--Christer Nilsson
