I could but then you wouldn't notice. When one answers as many emails/forums as I do with two fingers things sometimes comes out jumbled. Without spell check its the best i can do.

Well dang George why didn't you tell me you needed spell check! That's easy enough to do!

Nice sweet little download, it's from a very reliable and trusted source. I've been running that program for about, 3 years now, doesn't affect anything, but misspelled words in your posts! When you get done downloading it and go to use it, just right click in the form box you have filled out, and select check spelling. It'll run through everything you've filled in on the form, and no this is not just limited to forum posts, any form filled out in your web browser can be checked. In my personal opinion this one works better than the spell checker in MS Word too. Very Sweet program!!

Actually it's a relatively small program George, just a little shy of 2 megabytes. Dependent upon your connection speed, I'd say somewhere between 10 minutes and a half hour. Worst case scenarion on dial maybe an hour... That of course depends on your computer to a certain extent too. DSL about 3 seconds maybe!  :wink:

Well worth it though, it's a sweet little program!

Yeah it's entirely too sweet to pass up for anyone that's posting on the web a great deal. Don't know why I didn't think to recommend it before. It doesn't check grammar like spellcheck in MS Office, but as far as the actual spelling itself, it does have Office beat. You'll find if you forget to space and run two words together that IE Spell will sort it out and recommend the two words be spaced. Office loses it in that respect and doesn't offer a recommendation.

As for the program itself, as stated I've been running it nearly three years and it's never so much as hiccuped once, it runs flawlessly. I've never encountered a single problem with it in any respect. The only flaw I've found, is it doesn't yell that you forgot to spellcheck before you click the post button!  :wink:

It does often start outside the box on these forums George, and will spellcheck the topic occasionally, user name, and a bit of the code above the box. But otherwise it just works really sweet.

Yes sir... you're certainly welcome!

Anything else you might be looking for just shout, I might know where to find it, or at least something like it for free. Snapfiles' Freeware section is just absolutely full of little programs of all sorts, all are rated both by the staff and user input so you get a good idea of what works and what doesn't before you waste the time to download it.

If you have Broadband at work, or have a buddy that has it at home, you might want to pick up one of those little USB memory sticks, (a.k.a. Thumb Drives, Flash Drives, etc. etc.), you can find them at most office supply stores starting at around $25. If you have a USB Port on your computer that is, (it's probably located in the back right hand side [looking at it from the front] on a machine of that vintage, it's just a little rectangular slot 1/2"wide x 1/4" high, it'll likely be turned vertical if it's in the back too),

You can then download the program and save it to a folder on your office computer, simply by electing "Save" rather than "Run" or "Open" and then copy it to the thumb drive. Or... you can download and save directly to the thumb drive as well. Take it home click on the file and it should open right up. That saves a lot of time downloading goodies on dial-up! I clean  a lot of computers up for the locals, and any time I go to work on a dial-up connection, I download all the latest versions of the tools I need before I leave the house! As suggested above that program that took you 28 minutes to download, would have downloaded on my connection in well under 10 seconds.

If you need to download something for Microsoft itself, and it doesn't offer a Save option, but attempts to simply install, download a different web browser... Netscape, Firefox, Opera... they aren't tied into the operating system like Internet Explorer and those programs will give you a save option for MS files.

As for how much the memory sticks hold, I think the smallest you can buy now is about a 520mb. Mine's a 256mb and I've had entire folders full of saved programs on it, along with copy of several websites, and assorted other files all at once. One of the sites there is a 300+ page e-commerce site, loaded with pictures, so it's quite large, and there was still room to spare. They'll hold waaaaay more than what you think they will!
