    Amount

    I'm sorry.

    I'm watching the tutorials for Precision and the one guy keeps spelling it "ammount". He continuously leaves off the n, however. Finally, the other guy chimes in on that and says during the phase in which he was planning and writing things down, he kept leaving off one of the m's.

    It's spelled "amount". There is no second m.

    It's driving me absolutely freaking nuts through all the tutorials I've watched and finally I have to say something.

    Aside from that - great tutorials so far. Although, I'm wondering if they have any updates for 4.0. Some of the things they do I have to fix a little because there have been some obvious changes that come up as they're writing the code.

    They only do it to see if you are awake :P

    Really great videos, nontheless. You shouldn't have big problems with using later versions of XNA, since pretty much of it is the same (except for handling assets such as graphics). If you get stuck, just try searching in here; people have already asked about certain differences between old and new XNA versions

    if I recall they later realize they were misspelling amount.
    elevating to new levels of knowledge (that's the plan at least )

    Seriously I couldn't care less if Logan spelled it Elephant instead of Amount.

    Yeah, that's a huge difference between spelling those two.

    I watched some random tutorial series on youtube where the guy writes "tuna" instead of any variable name.

    Logically it should be: int number = 5; Not in his series... It's int tuna = 5;
    The programs had nothing to do with tuna, btw. He just thought it was funny.

    But anyway, it doesn't really matter how it's spelled as long as you get the concepts. At least it's a consistent error right?

    And programmers are notorious for poor spelling anyway. =)

    TheNewBoston AKA Bucky, correct?

    But yeah, it doesn't really matter - as long as the point comes across. It was just starting to drive me nuts so I had to drop by and just let them know For some reason it calmed me down a bit and then I was able to continue on with the tutorial.

    My father is a Grammar Nazi - so that may have something to do with it.

    Haha, yep, it was Bucky!

    I understand - getting it off your chest is important.
