Don't take this too seriously, OK? It's just that there have been a few mis-spellings on the site in the last day or two that have been hilarious!!

Like this one, from Kinnie:-

What's Goole got to do with it?
(cue Tina Turner....)

So, does AmiBay need a smell checker, to make sure that wee smell our worms properly when wee post on hear?

Just use a browser that already has a spell-checker, like Opera ;)

For me it would be a nice feature, I would be able to write with less mistakes, but there is no fun in using a forum, because it would take to long to create a message.

I never realised firefox had a spell checker, I can barely see the underlining. Maybe I need glasses:bowdown:

You've got one for us foreigners that would correct us in whole sentences? :LOL:

If not, leave it as it is, my Firefox is trying very hard to cover my mistakes... :roll:

Hold down the left CTRL key and press + to enlarge on-screen text or press - to make it smaller. Pressing 0 will reset to the default font size. Firefox should remember the font size when you leave the site and come back :)

I increased the size, probably did not notice the future, because it underlines everything in Dutch!:D Will have a look for a plugin.:)

The nicest one I got for a job yesterday in dutch:

Dear mr van den bossche,

I would like to apply for the job as project leader (would have been ok)

But he typed:

I would like to apply for the job as project sufferer :unsure: uuh:wooha: (because of some letters wrong)

They guy did not manage the language, but was ok, had a nice chat with him, because dutch was not needed.

My college advised to throw him in the bin, I understood it was not native language, turned out the client is going for an interview.

@ jvdbossc

I don't know if you've ever led or managed a project, but for me, that second description of "project sufferer" sums it all up for me.......:LOL:

Yup, but it was not humor, it was a mistake :)

You do not send it to somebody who is hiring:D

But I have a special view on my job, so yes understand that managing a project is not fun :blink: If I do an interview I ask to the candidate what he is expecting from the conversation, :) this method works quite well, since you get all kinds of stress away.:) But somethimes they totally lose it, since not expecting that they can participate(y) ooh I do not pose that question with woman or other orientations..



I nevered managed an IT project, being a system engineer and managing the helpdesk under it was enough for me:whistle:

Have you ever seen the film Blade Runner? You aren't the Harrison Ford character from the film that interviews replicants, are you.....:wooha:?

Merlin,

Probably seen it, without much looking at it, not my taste.

From a commercial point: make a difference, don't sell the same sh***, this means do right, but also do it another way.

Money means in my business a freelancer who is going to call hey I want a new project ..

I know they remember me long enough(y) And I can be myself all day..(y)

It's a typo Merlin. - Meaning I didn't press the key hard enough. :cool:

Some of the more serious spelling mistakes are when you see Granddad, but then maybe the guy actually got a double d because the d registered twice?

Don't think we need a spell checker though, not with "Google" just a click away. :p

....Unless of course, one can be introduced into VB so it corrects as you type. Now that would be really cool. :nod:

I voted for "No". The reason?

'Cause it will spoil the fun. :)
