The trick is to keep the process that owns your ets-tables alive.
Misspellings and other errors may easily cause your shell process to die.

When working interactively in the Erlang shell you can use two shells.
Create the tables in one shell, start yet another shell (control-g, s, c)
and go ahead and make all the errors that you need. ;-)
