Just a thought for the spelling chall-unged..

For those of you -- and you know who you are -- who wish to improve your post-readability factor on the forum, try this little site:

http://www.spellcheck.net/

You can cut and paste your post to their site, correct it there, then cut and paste back.

Ba-da-BOOM! Instant (perceived) intelligence upgrade.[:D]

Wouldn't ieSpell be a better choice?

^^^^^ C'mon, Ron, you gotta give 'em a link. If they can't spell, how are they going to type a name into a browser address bar?[:D][:D][;)]

^^^^^^^

The whole story is long and boring,but suffice it to say that AOL 56k rarely dumps me and on my 400mhz Pentium2,
'98 is remarkably stable.When one of you guys posts a video clip I dont even bother!
I have been intending to buy a laptop (Sony Vaio I think) for about a year now,but apathy prevails.


I just tried the spellcheck on an existing post from 'OT' and none of the six required corrections had appropriate alternatives in the drop down boxes.
