A reward from Sir Donald Thu, 17 May 2007 18:53:08 +0000

Dear Mr Ghose,

Many thanks for your extremely helpful note. [...]

I owe you the customary "reward check", because these corrections
affect pages of The Art of Computer Programming. To what snail-mail
address should the check be sent?

Don Knuth


Update: I received the cheque today! Check my flickr page for a scan of the cheque.

    Congrats man. Keep the good work up.


  9. Congratulations.

    I stumbled here via. the image you uploaded to Wikipedia. I’m curious (like many of the previous commenters are) as to what the errors were. Finding 4 errors in a book by the meticulous Knuth is indeed an achievement. 🙂
