volvo744: I do not believe you really understand how it is impossible for some of us to spell correctly.

To put it in a perspective you can understand, in my first sentence I had 6 misspellings, none of which I am able to spell correctly. I could look them up, but tomorrow I would still not be able to spell them correctly. So for me to write that one sentence correctly would take at least 5 minutes of checking a dictionary.

Remember the 20 words you had on your spelling test each week? For me to get passing grade required me to spend 3 hours the morning of the spelling test going over the words.  If i took the test again 1 week later, there was no way I could again pass.

Not griping, just things are what they are.

That said, if people need spellchecker as much as it appears here and most places I have seen, I am saddened by the state of it. My spellchecker took 12 years to install, is nearly flawless, and has a built in feature that instinctively tracks down the correct spelling when there is a question. It must not be available anymore, which is too bad, as it is a great program, especially taking into account the constant free upgrades available daily.

Do I make mistakes? Of course, we all do, especially when typing like I do, looking at the keys not the screen. I try to go back and correct the mistakes, though. Spellchecker is yet another reason education has taken a failed turn; because too many people rely upon it instead of referring to it.


Too bad there aren't grammar checkers in toolbars or browsers. There are way too many people using words such as to instead of too or your instead of you're among others.

HiTech,

I hope you don't infer from my original post that I was making fun of you for your spelling in any way, like some of these dingleberries are.  I wasn't.

Some people stutter when they talk, but can sing like angels.

HT stutters when he types.  As long as he can still write stuff what makes my cartoon airplanes fly, I'm not complaining.

there is now beer, snot, and something unidentified, all over my screen and keyboard.  But my sinuses are clear for the first time in a week.

scottydawg: Didn't think you were when you posted, but if you had I would not have taken offense. Even I make fun of my spelling.
