Why am I reminded of the short story "Flowers for Algernon"?

Just a thought...

Im working on it! I too used the spell checker all the time, sadly, i now need to pay $5 CPM for the spell checker, frankly, i cant afford that! I have been looking for an alternitive, but have not yet found anything yet. I have some ideas on how to pay for the spell checker, but i dont want to get into details just yet

We don't need no stinkin spell check!

Don't do it Joe! Megabuck$ for a $peller, really isn't necessary.
I think it gives a little character to to the forum to just "let her rip" and be ourselves.

I didn't realize that having a spell checker cost that much money. I was just curious about where it went to. But if you can find a spell check for free that would be great!

Oh, no! The handwriting's on the wall. Joe's going to charge us for each misspelled word! The money will go to fund the spell-checker!

Joe, you also got rid of the links to Performance Bike and REI. What is up with that? I thought they were paying you for the link?

When I can't figure out how to spell a word I just open up Microsoft Word, paste the word in question and then if it is misspelled a red squiggly line appears underneath it. And then I can right click and it will give me several spelling options. Pretty dang cool says I.

That's one of the few things I like about Microsoft Word 2000!

I was using Word 6 and it was so much faster, worked better, everything about it was better, almost. But the spell-checker in Word 2000 is even better than in Word 6, and I also use the "custom" dictionary feature a lot, putting my own words in.

I write my (enormous) journal using Word, so I've written many, many thousands of pages with that program.

Fubar, and others, I am pretty sure there are well-reviewed freeware spellchecking programs for offline use, which of course could be used while you're online, for something like posting. I haven't looked into them because I have MS Word and don't need one, but they could be handy for many users....

A.F. there's still a link to Performance Bike on the home page underneath the General Discussion header. I had to keep looking back there to find it myself.

AF, im going to include a "Shop" link in the header to Performance Bike, I just forgot about it, I wasnt making any money off REI, but performance was helping pay some of the bills Thanks for the reminder!

Jon, if i charged just once cent for each missspeled (sp?) words on this forum, i would be a milionair! (sp?)

Then, says I, GO FOR IT!
By the way, you at least spell my name right. Most people put an "h" in it. Way uncool.
