Thanks for this correction to Christopher Craig:

I like you page on TeX, but had to comment that TeX is properly pronounce like the Tech in Technology (Knuth "The TeXbook" page 1) and thus the proper name for a TeX hacker is a TeXnichian not a TeXpert as you stated on your page ( in fact the first exercise in the TeXbook is "After you have mastered the material in this book will you be: A TeXpert or a TeXnichian?" to which the correct answer is "A TeXnician (underpaid); sometimes also called a TeXacker." (Knuth, the TeXbook)

Please change this grievous error.
