Ditto, which at first glance seems a handy and insignificant sort of word, actually has a Roman past, for it comes from dictus, "having been said," the past participle of the verb dcere, "to say." In Italian dcere became dire and dictus became detto, or in the Tuscan dialect ditto. Italian detto or ditto meant what said does in English, as in the locution "the said story." Thus the word could be used in certain constructions to mean "the same as what has been said"; for example, having given the date December 22, one could use 26 detto or ditto for 26 December. The first recorded use of ditto in English occurs in such a construction in 1625. The sense "copy" is an English development, first recorded in 1818. Ditto has even become a trademark for a duplicating machine.

Yes I do, but google wasn't helpful on that one... Searched Diddo, hundreds of articles under that spelling... Obviously a common mis-conception.

I got requested as well. I was skeptical at first, but it's legit. We get a free copy though.

Yes, I got confirmation from Terry (His header was legit|), from Eric, and from the orangeboard.

I am glad we were able to clear this up so quickly.....sadly, I was not contacted in regards to being included...but I am still looking forward to getting the book, even if I have to pay for it.

As of now it doesn't look like many people have been contacted. Three of this post, so I would say there are MANY MANY more to come. I'm sure you will be contacted soon GH.

I was simply more persistent, and it was somewhere after 500 I believe.

I got that PM last night, I was wondering myself at the legitimacy. Sure I'm paranoid, but am I paranoid enough? I'll PM Christy or someone.

Of course, it is a holiday weekend, so they're probably on the beach sipping Tequila Sunrises. Myself I'm spending the holiday sipping broth and trying to keep crackers down.

It's the flu, start of every semester, must be the poorly ventilated, over packed auditoriums. I'm trying to rest, but everytime I fall asleep, my wife yells "Death with Dignity" and tries to smother me with a pillow.

If you want to keep the person's privacy, would you mind sending me the name of the person who sent you the PM? I don't have a list, but I could make an educated guess.
