    MEssageBox("Wrong") is something I do 90% of the time. Other then that is only every other word.

    I don't usually have a problem with spelling... but i do hate that "offset" problem where you're typing and you end up doing something like this:

    smf o ;olr jpe upi fpo yjod dpty pg yjomh///

    it's the right keys, wrong place.. I do it all the freakin time.

    I don't do the offset thing, but I do do the double capitalization.... I don't type particularly fast, but it's fast enough that my fingers don't have enough time to get off the shift key.

    My biggest spelling problem was when I worked in a Congressional office. They were using some funky keyboards, where the space bar was split in half, and the left half was a backspac and the right half was a space.

    use ur skills

    Im surprised a bunch of programmers havn't worked out how to customize a spellchecker to catch silly mistakes - thats one thing I always do on a new PC.

    Unfortunatly, too much does tend to cause new errors!

    The thing that bugs me most though is having a different language in the spell checker - Having been taught UK english as being the one and only, having Word on someone else's system telling me that there's no U in colour and that Licence ends with a SE is soooo annoying!

    Are there any other nationalities who suffer similar problems?
    I don't want to belong to any club that'll accept me as a member!

    The sad part is that I spell like that and I'm from the US. The other thing (rcvr[y gpt yjr 2 pffdrt) is typing is i s!!!
