[PATCH] Typos in lj_article.txt

From: Michael W Thelen <thelenm_at_cs.utah.edu>
Date: 2004-05-22 07:44:06 CEST

Just a few typo fixes for lj_article.txt. It looks like there are quite
a few differences in the actual published version of the article at
http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=4768. I'm willing to
incorporate these into lj_article.txt if it's not a problem. What do
you think?
