As a general note to follow up on Geoff's response:
With words that end in "ic" or optionally "ical" to form the adjective,
the former is more typical American usage, and the latter is not
typically used in the US as much (except in certain cases, such as
"graphical user interface"), but more commonly used in Britain. Either
form, however, is technically "correct" as far as I know.
