    I just noticed something

    My Google tool bar has a spell checker built into it that works on this forum.
    Something I been needing for a long time. Now Vaughn won't have to go around behind me fixing my mistakes.

    I used that one too. Then I switched to Firefox. Just got the newest one and it has a spell check in it. Just have to remember to use it.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Reminds me of a funny story.

    I used to work for the Government in the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Lest the public think that we were a bunch of illiterates protecting them from glowing in the dark, there was a strict rule that anything that would be seen by the public or by government hot shots had to go through an editor for proof reading. We really hated this because we had deadlines and the editors would take their time and send it back for rewrite because of some arcane rule like database has to be either one word or two - I forget which.

    What I enjoyed doing was to quote a law that had a spelling error in it (happens a lot). The editors went ballastic. They couldn't change a quote, but they couldn't leave a spelling error in it either.

    Revenge is sweet!

    Huh?

    So I'm confused, why not just use the spell checker on the right hand side of the message window in bulletin?

    But, what ever we do we want to give Vaughn more time!
