comment What's a better word than “colon-ized” or “title-rrhea” for this style in book titles?
+1 for beating me to it! Linked commentators notwithstanding, I'm not sure that it's really a problem. It's just different. Considering that about 33 new titles are published every hour in the US, descriptive subtitles may just be a marketing necessity.

comment Using “will” twice in a sentence
Perhaps you mean "When you come to see me we'll have dinner together"? The *we is still there, just contracted with will.

comment Using “will” twice in a sentence
I may well have misunderstood. In the OP's version, both wills are bold, so the anaphoric emphasis seemed intentional.

comment Origin of “bug” in reference to software
@Nikko, I added the "update" section to point back to the Wikipedia article specifically because I realized that "debug" (not to mention "bug") was not coined by Adm. Hopper. Nevertheless, if you ask anyone who knows something about computing lore about "bug", Adm. Hopper's name and this story are bound to come up, and the moth taped in the notebook will forever be "the first computer bug." She may not have coined the term, but she unquestionably cemented it in the daily lexicon of computing.
