It's always interesting how youthful indiscretions have a way of catching up with us.

I think you're English is good, Trew. I don't know any Swedish words let alone being able to spell them.

Yes but it is annoying when I spell same

word wrong again and again.

nad instead if and
ahve instead of have
ohters instead of others

if instead of of

They recommend me to use spelling correcting progs? That would help when I actually do spell wrong but not when I drop letter as in us instead of use the spelling program would see no error in us as far as I know cause it is not grammar sensitive.

Yes it would be more polite of me to use a spelling correcting prog but my only options are to be a contributer with spelling errors or to not be active here at all.

Thanks for kind words Jeff

There is certainly a lot of fun to be had with putting your name into Google and clicking I'm Feeling Lucky.

Trew: Many people (with excellent spelling skills) type these words wrong. It is a fact, that if you try and type too fast, your brain can get ahead of you fingers (and you type the letters early) So and becomes nad (I do it myself all the tiem)
