Help - Computer 101

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I know...I am not computer friendly. :angry:

I have a Dell and my spellcheck is disabled. Without it you will not hear a peep out of me! I usually don't push buttons that I don't know what they do.

And tech assistance to retrieve it would be a big help.

Please.

Well I'm no help but I'm confused about spell check as well. On my computer at work the spell checker is there and on my computer at home it never has been. Strange...

Edit: I should clarify that I'm talking about the spell checker that's part of this actual website. I think it's a new feature.

Ode to a Spelling Checker

I have a spelling checker.

It came with my PC.

It plane lee marks four my revue

Miss steaks aye can knot sea.

Eye ran this poem threw it,

Your sure reel glad two no.

Its vary polished in it's weigh.

My checker tolled me sew.

A checker is a bless sing,

It freeze yew lodes of thyme.

It helps me right awl stiles two reed,

And aides me when aye rime.

Each frays come posed up on my screen

Eye trussed too bee a joule

The checker pours o'er every word

To cheque sum spelling rule.

Bee fore a veiling checkers

Hour spelling mite decline,

And if we're lacks oar have a laps

We wood bee maid too wine.

Butt now bee cause my spelling

Is checked with such grate flare

Their are know faults with in my cite

Of nun eye am a wear.

Now spelling does knot phase me

It does knot bring a tier

My pay purrs awl due glad den

With wrapped words fare as hear.

To rite with care is quite a feet

Of witch won should bee proud

And wee mussed dew the best wee can

Sew flaws are knot aloud.

Sow ewe can sea why aye dew prays

Such soft wear four pea seas

And why eye brake in two averse

Buy righting want too pleas.

But, seriously, consider using Mozilla Firefox V2. It has a spell checker built right into the browser. Click here to download this FREE browser.
