*.jpe?g

The shell might have something to say about that...

(Actually, Bourne-style shells will still pass it through in the likely event that nothing matches that glob, but it's not very safe.)

edit: And the only way to get the match you want from find is to use something like:

find dir -name \*.jpg -or -name \*.jpeg

[Tanktalus]: My basic problem right now is that if I were willing to move, I could be back in Toronto with a pay raise. We have a number of reasons for not wanting to do that.
[marioroy]: I had to backslash the backslash inside qx.
[Tanktalus]: marioroy++ # nice catch
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, that makes kinda makes sense.
[Discipulus]: yes i can survive also in younger town.. but when i passed i saw many strange letters..
