Use of Spell Checkers

Oh, weight ... this is not about spell checkers. All of the words in the list below will be approved by you're speil checker. This is about picking the right word during the writing process. A spell checker will not help, unless it has artificial intelligence regarding homophones. And proper use of apostrophes.

Footnotes:
  1. Recently, I read an article on the MacWorld web site. The author wrote, "I penned a little reaction peace entitled iDisappointed, expressing my dismay at the lack of Mac hardware updates." And World Piece to you as well.
  2. A wether is a male sheep, especially a castrated one; not "it is raining."

Yes, there is humor involved on this page. Smiley
