Default Chapter 6 Errata

134
The DrawableRectangle class definition has a Bounds method, but really means to have a GetBounds method to match the IDrawable interface.

141
The sentence:
It saves the result returned by BeginInvoke, which is an IAsynchResult object.
should read:
It saves the result returned by BeginInvoke, which is an IAsyncResult object.
147
The example code:
Code:
Piece[] Board = new Piece[8, 8];
should actually have a comma in the first set of brackets, for the syntax for initializing a multi-dimensional array:
Code:
Piece[,] Board = new Piece[8, 8];

You're' right about these. Hopefully they were just annoying and not confusing.

Happy New Year!

Default More annoyning than confusing

Yeah, these are just little things I come across as I read through this splendid guide. This book is a truly wonderful resource. I'm going through it as a primer for my adventures with Unity, and I feel like I'm getting a strong foundation of knowledge, so thanks!
