I've been using the free utility ieSpell for some months to help me avoid spelling errors whenever I post information on web sites, such as this one. Here's some info from the ieSpell home page:

ieSpell is a free Internet Explorer browser extension that spell checks text input boxes on a webpage. It should come in particularly handy for users who do a lot of web-based text entry (e.g. web mails, forums, blogs, diaries). Even if your web application already includes spell checking functionality, you might still want to install this utility because it is definitely much faster than a server-side solution. Plus you get to store and use your personal word list across all your applications, instead of maintaining separate ones on each application.

"ieSpell" is easy to install and integrates into Internet Explorer as a menu item and if desired as a Toolbar icon. It's very easy to use. And best of all, it's free for personal use.

I recommend it! :)

I just wanted to refesh this note that HaRRy posted a couple of years ago. We have a lot of new members lately, and we welcome you all. However in a public forum that everyone reads and many want to respond to, we have to be careful to convey our thoughts and ideas in a manner that all can understand. I'll admit I am not perfect myself, but some of the recent posts by newer members have been close to unreadable with the spelling and grammar errors. This distracts from the points you are trying to make. The tool is out there, so please use it if you are unsure of how to spell something. Thanks! :)

On an unrealted note apperntly Hughus is making Mangers more accountable he fired Ed Walker VP-Transpertation today. Watch Out Folks this could get interasting.

I'm saying it again. Please use the spell check software that is available to you. It is easy to lose track of the conversation or the point the poster is trying to make when so many words are spelled incorrectly. I don't claim to be perfect myself, but half a dozen words in two sentences is a bit too much.
