Default Spell Check Feature

How about the Spell Check Feature that is available within this forum? (spell check button appears right of the preview button)

What is needed, aspell or pspell(preferred) installed, if you get hosting from somewhere, you'll have to ask them to install one of them in order to work.

Just a suggestion.

I think this feature was taken down when the server crashed a couple weeks ago. Should be restored shortly.

Thanks mate. My spelling is shocking since I am able to rely on computer spell checks. My old school teachers would be horrified if they saw me now.

I wouldn't worry. I didn't see one incorrectly spelled word in that post.

I'm such a bad speller that I have a miss-speller's dictionary to help me misspell the really hard to misspell words.

Are you so bad Mike that even the spell checker is confused?

Yes, sometimes I can come up with words that even the MS Word dictionary can't figure out. Even when I revert to a good, paper based dictionary, I can't find the word because I've misspelled it so bad I'm not even close to the actual spelling. It's funny though, I bought a Franklin Spelling Ace back around 1987 that looks like a little calculator with a keyboard that can actually figure out what I'm trying to spell most of the time. I still use it when Word can't figure out the word and it still finds the right spelling most of the time. I don't remember how much I paid for it at the time, probably about $80, but it's great for trying to show words that have certain letters. You just put the letters in the spot you want them and it will give a list of all the words that have the letters in those spots. Great for scrabble.

Mike
