None for me tonight Al, way too many units last night. Multo-sore bonce this morning. Still, there's always tomorrow. Apparently it's the new Thursday.

Back on topic. I don't spell check. I usually notice the mistake just as I click "submit".....or not as the case may be. I just like to live on the wild side. Call me daring, call me dangerous, just don't call me Shirley.

My spell checker tends to go to bed at 10pm on school days so I only get mistakes late at night.

Same here and I go even further to spell check. If the Forum checker can't help me I paste into a Word document to check.

After all this I still can't spell " Dihorea " , meaning " To have the trots ! " I posted on a Thread very recently !

I couldn't spell that either...

and there are certain words that I know I will spell incorrectly every time..... but I can't find a way to easily remember them

For example: Acheive or Achieve..... I know as soon as I type it and look at the screen that I've got it wrong.... but I still do it every time
