A delightful typo: Paintain

with one comment

While discussing a new software feature, I made the following typo:

17:56 <@jbowes> and then people would use it, and then we'd have to paintain it
17:56 <@jbowes> i meant to type maintain, but that word is awesome

I think paintain aptly describes what many of us do daily.
