Hah, took me several tries to figure out what's wrong with that sentence.

Thanks for pointing it out!

Tangentially related--I mentioned this in IRC a couple weeks back: the brain naturally skips common/familiar words in common sentence structures:
If you're reading this, then the the brain might not see the two "the"s I just used.
You can put two "the"s in a sentence and your brain will skip right past without noticing (most times).

I spotted the extra 'the' immediately :D - well, should you need a proofread, do let me know ;) .
