Spell Checking Posts

Post by zelph » Fri Nov 09, 2007 12:07 pm

I'm not the best speller, too lazy to use spell check and always in a hurry :D

After reading this message from my wife made me feel better about my spelling.

Only great minds can read this!

That was awesome Zelph I could read that perfectly. For a minute there I thought I was reading my wife's writing, as she has issues with dislexia. I do too, but mine are with numbers, go figure. :mrgreen:

When I was in school I had a perfect average in accounting and thought I would do that for my job, but I couldn't do it because I always feared I would make one my errors mixing up the numbers and I really didn't want to go to jail for it, LOL! :mrgreen:

Hi Zelph,

Absolutely amazing, brilliant find, I had no trouble reading it at all.

So what does this make me.

Zelph, I received a similar email a couple weeks ago. I read it almost as quickly as normal, which is pretty slow. I thought I might sign up to be a windtalker for the military :lol:

BTW, Firefox comes with a spell checker, Zelph. That would help with the speelign porbelm that you mentioned. Or, you could do like Matthewski and just not care!

I tried fire fox its ok but the spell checker sucks i got to pick the right one if you cant spell it how do you find it. Now on internet explorer i got one for it shows what it thinks it is the right one it got a long list about 15 to pick from its better for me. You know i spell a lot of words wrong but people still can read it.At one time in school my theacher said look it up i said if you cant spell it how do you look it up. I not going to use the spell check on this hope you can read it cause i can :mrgreen:
