Spell Checking

I mostly use G-Chrome as a browser. For some reason, when I'm posting here, I'm not seeing a red line appear under misspelled words. It works elsewhere. So, if I want to check my spelling when posting here, I have to do it manually. I go to "edit" and then "spelling and grammar" to check. I'm wondering if this is just me or if others are seeing it, too.

Re: Spell Checking

Yes, I noticed that there's no auto-check in Firefox. That's why most of my posts have been edited!

Re: Spell Checking

Nope, mine aren't auto-spellchecked eother *wink*
(Oh, and I use Chromium, for what it's worth.)

Just the great spellchecker in my head. I consider my typos and erratic spelling to be both charming and stylish.

Ha! I once heard that if you are not sure how to pronounce a word, and you find yourself in the awkward situation in which you have to say the word out loud, just say it extra-loud and bold, so that if you get it wrong, it sounds like you meant to do it!

It reminds me of a joke, now spontaneously translated from Hungarian: A businessman talks to his secretary about an upcoming meeting, "Starting at 2pm, next Wednesday", he says. "Sir" blushes the secretary, "how many E-s are in Wednesday?". The businessman thinks for a few seconds, then says "So, 2pm, next Thursday".

Ha! Yoink. I'm stealing that one. Is it OK if they're Hungarian when I tell it? Hmm. No. I can adapt for an American audience. I think a new thread might be in order, though.
