  1. why is that Platinum is spelled as Platignum?

    Just typo or any sort of reference?

  2. It's a little, and quite old English writers joke. Platignum is a brand of famous pen and apparently, a few famous writers used to hand write their manuscripts and the books were best sellers. So "Platignum" was used in phrases such as "I just wrote my latest book -it's pure platignum" (platinum being worth a lot back then). I think I may change it as I'm wondering how many others are going too get the joke......
