Spell checking
« on: November 19, 2010, 10:36:43 PM »
Since I recently had to rebuild/reinstall my hard drive and all assiocated programs, I seem to have lost this "the finest  of forums"..(suck suck..) spell checking? Someone please take great pleasure in informing this dumb prick where I may be doing wrong. Cheers Tim754.        OK  First person that says I am incorrectly spelling words is inviting the curse of perpetual cactus spine genitals...............

I think this software (SMF) used to have Spell Check enabled. Somewhere along the line it got turned off or disabled.
Either Grahame can find it and turn it back on, or the server hasn't got the right whatsit compiled (pspell) in...

an option might be for you to use an IE add-in, like http://iespell.com/

There did used to be spell checking, but for some reason the server host disabled the feature. However that was years ago. Your browser should provide a basic spell-checker anyway. I use Google Chrome and if I misspell a word, it underlines it in red and I can right-click to get some options. I am not sure if Firefox and IE do this though I'd imagine they do.

I've always had the Google Chrome spell check enabled. It's not hard to hook up and it kicks in with everything we write, even emails. I reckon using it should be priority one for some of the posters here ;).

Don't worry Tim, it will all get easier when they implement this....

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.
 
As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5- year phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English".

In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c".. Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.


There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f".. This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.
 

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible.

Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling.
 
Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.


By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v".

During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensi bl riten styl.

Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi TU understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru.
 


Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas.

If zis mad you smil, pleas pas on to oza pepl.
