      This is an extra step, I know…

      I have two monitors on this laptop, the laptop screen itself and a biggo one that I use for trading the e-minis so I can see the charts with my bad up close eyesight.  I have discovered that if I open Outlook or Word, I can just copy and paste the text that I want to post into one of those programs and let it do the spellchecking for me.  It is an extra step, but not too time consuming.  I think you can just open the programs if you have ’em onto your regular screen too.

      Or better yet, why worry about spelling?  We are among friends here, right? 

      I do kinda like just logging in and not having to type in the codes to post anymore.  I always messed up trying to decide if the lower care ‘c’ was an ‘e’.

      Y’all take good care, K.

          oh I do love not having to figure out all that weird printing half the time I had to move on to another set to try.  or worse just almost give up.  Spell check is fine, but only a few people think spelling is a direct link to intelligence.  And poke insults at us less inclined.  (They should see me try to text hahah)  hubby stands over me, and says   USE A SHORTER FORM  (money doncha kknow)

           

          He was so upset (not really) when I finally learned how to text to our dotter when we were camping, but it took me a while to sort out how to say  I luv u and u r sweet 2 and know she would understand it!  (she is 30)  haha  My spelling has always been quite bad, and I blame myself, for doing it phonetically to  help my deaf mom with her pronounciation.   (my story and I am sticking to it)
