I'm loosing my mind!

We were discussing the DevOps offerings of (Very Big Tech Company) the other day, and we had a rep from the company at class, along with some of their official slides.

In several of the slides, we were warned about "Loosing our source code" or "Loosing track of what packages are in a build."

What is going on with that word?

1) I never saw that mis-spelling 20 years ago; and
2) It is clearly a form of "lose," and I have never seen anyone mistake "loose" for "lose."

Any ideas?


  1. The code for a software virus can be loosed upon the world.
    Be thankful they haven’t learnt the word “louche” yet.
