What Are You Doing Here?

By all means, click and go: the Chicago Manual of Style October Q&A is up. Here's one of my favorite Q&A from this month's list:

Q. My colleagues are divided in their opinions about “storing data in a computer” versus “storing data on a computer.” Which is correct? Thanks.

A. You can do either, but I would store the data in the computer. It used to be easy to store stuff on a computer, but now with flat screens and laptops it tends to slide off.

Also, those of you who've been wondering about 15mph (no space) or 15 mph (with space) and 8mm (no space) or 8 mm (space) can soon sleep easier, with your questions resolved.
