If this fascinating ongoing discussion is any indication, Michael Cunningham has particular problems with typing Japanese (and "Japanese"--see below) words off the top of his head:*

-"Ishoguro" (Cunninghamese) = Kazuo Ishiguro (the writer)

-"Udoru" (Cunninghamese) = Idoru by William Gibson (the novel, which in itself is an unfortunate mis-Romanization of the Japanese アイドル [aidoru])

*No insult intended, naturally. He's one of my favorite writers. And, for what it's worth, these were the only spelling errors in his posts that jumped out at me. (EDIT: Nevermind. I just saw another one--another book title. *winces*)
