Spell check saves a lot of us- but if you text, be very careful with auto correct...... It can get you into all kinds of trouble

You know you rely on Spellcheck too much when you're writing a letter or a note with a real pen and paper and you pause for a couple seconds after you notice that a word doesn't look quite right.... waiting for Spellcheck to let you know if it's spelled properly.

I've caught myself doing that a few times.

I wonder if anyone will ever develop a #2 pencil that automatically corrects spelling.

THIS is the solution for all of dis problems, spelling, bad grammer, punkchewayshon, and haveing to youse spel check!

Jest follow what Mark says be-low:


A Plan for the Improvement of English Spelling
by Mark Twain


For example, during the change over, in Year 1 that useless letter "c" would be
dropped to be replased
either by "k" or "s", and likewise "x" would no longer be part of the alphabet. The
only kase in which "c" would be retained would be the "ch" formation, which will be
dealt with later. Year 2 might reform "w" spelling, so that "which" and "one" would
take the same konsonant, wile Year 3 might well abolish "y" replasing it with "i"
and Iear 4 might fiks the "g/j" anomali wonse and for all.

Jenerally, then, the improvement would kontinue lear bai lear with Iear 5 doing
awai with useless double konsonants, and Iears 6-12 or so modifaiing vowlz and the
rimeining voist and unvoist konsonants. Bai Iear 15 or sou, it wud fainali bi
posibl tu meik ius ov thi ridandant letez "c", "y" and "x" - bai now jast a memori
in the maindz ov ould doderez - tu riplais "ch", "sh", and "th" rispektivli.

Fainali, xen, aafte sam 20 iers ov orxogrefkl riform, wi wud hev a lojikl, kohirnt
speling in ius xrewawt xe Ingliy-spiking werld.

Worse than spell checking for me is remembering absolutely none of the phone numbers I dial. I just rely on the dialer. I feel like an idiot when someone asks for a number and I have to hang up to call them back.

Even worse- I have to open my phone and search "me" to find my number sometimes

BTDT.
The last time I ended up scribbling my phone number on a piece of scrap paper, took a pic of it, and now use it as my wallpaper on my phone.

Add yourself to your phones address book, and put a number 1 or the letter A as the first letter in the name. Example: "1TheEplumber". Makes it easier and faster to find your number because you'll most likely be at the top of the list.

Won't a space do the same?

I just remembered a story my son in law- an I.T. guy told me.
He serviced a guys PC in the office place where he works one day-
The guy had written his password on the monitor screen because he could never remember it

I work with a guy who forgets his password once a week, and ultimately locks himself out of his account trying to remember it. I asked him to write it down and keep it in his locker. He did.

He lost it.

Another guy writes his login name and password on a poster next to the computer for every program that we use.
