Default My Spelling and Grammar

Every single time I post in a forum I always need to check for * & G. It never fails that I always.........and I mean always have mistakes, even when I recheck it several times there'* time mistakes that I miss. Every so often I ask Cathy to read something I wrote and the first comment she makes is, "there'* two m'* in that word, or it'* "re not r. It drives me nuts, she'* a bit anal with spelling and I'm the exact opposite, I couldnít care less. Yes, I know I can appreciate good spelling and grammar but hell, I always make mistakes. I also know there'* fire fox or what ever but I'm not computer savvy and I have to much stuff on this PC that I don't want to get confused with more add ons. Donít bother counting how many I have in this post cause I donít want to know.

Bare with me when reading my post............K?

you really dont need to be computer savvy to use firefox. My dad was stubborn about ti, but once i installed it and he used it for a couple of days he now hates Internet Explorer like the rest of us foxers. Dont be scared; embrace it!

Indeed.... Firefox is not that difficult. Quite simple actually. I hate having to use IE at work, but I don't think Tony would appreciate me downloading internet browsing software when I'm supposed to be "working"

Google tool bar FTL.....

Some websites that some people goto like Bank or Credit card or even some safe normal websites that have login boxes that pop up or other things like that to use the site may be block by it.
We have to fight with it at work all the time on one account.

Im not saying its not safe or not good, im just saying why bother installing it, just use Firefox.

Frank... you have nothing to worry about. Your posting is fine...unlike Badnit'*.. (I swear even his name is spelled wrong most of the time. )

Firefox is nice..
GoogleToolbar is the largest piece of crap and I hate the fact that it'* attached to nearly everything you try to load and have to say no to it 1,000,000,000 times in your life.

Thanks for making me feel better people, but you have no idea what I go through before I actually end up posting. I've even copy and paste to Outook 2003 and did the spell check there and copy and paste back. Man what a pain in the ***. I swear Cathy never, ever has and grammar or spelling errors.
