Cognitive Dissonance

There are certain words I can never type right for the first time. One is ‘formula’. My finger always wants to type it as ‘formular’, thinking that there is a missing ‘r’ at the end. Another one is ‘cvs’. I always end up typing ‘svn’, then backspacing it three times to retype ‘cvs’. However, I have no problem typing ‘git’ (I’m not kidding!).

  1. How about BitKeeper or arch? I often find myself confusing BitKeeper with HellKeeper. arch however tends to end up as arhc. svn works porfect for me too, altthough cvs always becomes csv.

  2. That’s interesting. I can certainly relate to the “cvs always becoming csv” part. ;-)
