Can someone please go through the index and correct the spelling. For example, what have fairies to do with Gigs and Collaboration? Unless you're trying to count how many of them can dance on the head of a pin...

Why shouldn't fairies play with Arduinos?

And how should the word be spelled?  Is there a British variation?  Something like "fouries"?

I (maybe wrongly) presume it should be Faires if shoving an s on the end of faire is suitable.

I just assumed it was an Americanism for an investor / venture capitalist.

It should be spelt "fairs" or "faires". The former is the more common spelling, the latter is more 'Ye olde worlde'.
See ..... Scarborough Fair by Simon and Garfunkle.
And "fairies" has another connotation....

What, in  the theatre world, is known as an 'Angel'. Could be.

No reason whatsoever. Whatever turns one on, as long as it's legal and consensual.  :smiley-roll:  ;)
