Nukeing vs. nuking

A special post to welcome a new pedant to the blogsphere. Which is the correct spelling, nukeing or nuking? Every authority that I can find, up to and including Google, supports the latter, but it just looks wrong to me.

It's not just this one - puke > puking looks wrong to me, too, though I know it isn't. But leaving the 'magic' e off doesn't always look wrong - poke > poking looks fine.

I suspect I'm just losing it... ;-)
