Search terms and feedback

While the keywords which have found my website lately are no where near as interesting as forthright's, a number left me wondering what the person was actually searching for. I've edited out most of the least interesting search terms. Which just shows I don't realliy get many interesting ones.

medieval technology This is reliably my top search term
early technology And this is reliably the second. Perhaps I should post more on the subject?

nah, if it's typed, then it's an edition for sure. But I don't know about scans. I believe that would be a facsimile or just, a scan.

Right?

Re: hmmm
Quite literally, it's not a manu scripta unless it's written by hand. I was wondering if the modern definition of what counted as a manuscript had evolved since the latin.

After all, what if the writer never wrote it by hand? Many writers only work on computers these days. It doesn't make sense to me to call the original draft of something, even on a computer, an edition.

Re: hmmm
oh wow, you're right. I wonder what the OED has to say about the modern definition of Manuscript.

Re: hmmm (manuscripts)
My one-man writing firm is called "manu scripta". Everything I write is typed into the computer by hand. I therefore see no contradiction.
But thanks for the challenge! - and for your thought-provoking page.
