Anal me sees a fella posting RETICULE, I've been using RETICLE. The Board Software redlines RETICLE. I say, huh?????
The MacMini I use has a dictionary in the task bar so, it being that easy I looked it up.
Here's what I found:
1 chiefly historical a woman's small handbag, originally netted and typically having a drawstring and decorated with embroidery or beading.
2 variant spelling of reticle .
ORIGIN early 18th cent.: from French réticule, from Latin reticulum (see reticulum ).
a series of fine lines or fibers in the eyepiece of an optical device, such as a telescope or microscope, or on the screen of an oscilloscope, used as a measuring scale or an aid in locating objects.
ORIGIN mid 18th cent.: from Latin reticulum ‘net.’
Some of had best check the scopes we use as the reason for those misses may well be the handbag that's in there.
If you read all of this yuranerd
