I am here to apologize for my really bad typing. I am dyslexic and often I get the keys backwards when I am typing. Also I have a busted thumb which doesn't help anything.. But I do apologize to all of you who have tried and did well to decopher my spelling.......
Thank you for your patience......

I developed small fractures in the knuckle and it calcifed to a small ball so my thumb is numb and in a semi permanent curve.. they say it happens in diabetics frequently..

I've seen much worse on various tech forums, so don't even worry about it!

If I use forum spell checkers it freezes my system. at best I get about a 40 connect......

try firefox like Larry suggested - it has a built in spell check just like MS word - puts a red underline on any word that it does not recognize

If you are a paid poster (as you stated on another thread) you should be able to upgrade to a better system that won't freeze up and/or buy a spellcheck program and write off the costs as a business expense on your taxes.

Just a thought

No Problem, I might suggest the little ABC Check mark to the right when you are posting. This will catch most of the spelling errors for you.:smiley20: Another option is to type your replies or new threads in Word spell check and then Cut and Paste here.

Crashes less than internet explorer and has built in spell check.

Kewl I need that! My fingers and my brain don't always move at the same speed ..... or even on the same continent sometimes! Nice to see someone else with the same problem. It is even better to see you don't get judged HERE by your spelling:smiley20:

Firefox 3.0.1 is great, and with adblock plus it's even better!

And I agree, it's nice to be in a forum where discussion occurs, and friendliness and helpfulness appear to be the norm.
