...and that's a REALLY new spelling of the word for "not old - recently formed or made".

Ahh, you can always depend on Aldan to catch your silly mistakes. Keep it up, you never know. You may drive bad spelling and grammer out of us

Please note that although I almost always notice the mistakes, I don't always comment on them. On words that are difficult, I will usually not say a thing, or else just say "nice try, here's how it's really spelled, but it's a tough one." I usually won't call who me on her mistakes, though I will make an exception here or there... but for those who are purportedly attempting to become writers, I will indeed. Neuro and Magus both know this, as do several other members here.

You use a computer that is connected to the internet. The internet is not only interesting in places as well as fun, but it can be informative as well. Dictionary.com and other such locales are nice 'sites (note the spelling?) that will help you to know that "know" is not the same as "no" and that "knew" is not the same as "new" and what the differences between the two words are in each case.

Meh. I know (no) the difference between knew (nu) and new (gnu). I just didn't catch that error.

But, hey, with this new spell check you have to admit that my misspellings have considerably dropped.

Oh, I have one of those sites on my favourites list. I use it all the time to look up the real meaning of those words we all love to use but don't know what they really mean. We all have those words. We hear them in movies and on tv and we assume that we know what they mean, but sometimes it's good to know for sure.
