It would be nice if eveyone list there location
Since US and Canada is sure a large land mass and with different weather systems.
It would be nice to see a person location as it might help to understand their answer or question easier. Age would also be helpfully.
One thing I like about this forum, is nobody gets their **** in a knott, if there is some spelling errors.
Some forums flame you like crazy over an error

Doesn't it get a "u", knout, eh (just :jester: I've got Canandian roots)

BTW if we discuss snow driving and laying up car for winter, can only mean we're from Great Lakes or Canada. New Englanders will keep driving all winter and Rocky Mountain stateas are still under snow and can't get to their computers. :lol:

No secret I'm in SE Michigan. For the heck of it, you can put the dot on the Milford Proving Ground - I'm closer to that than I am the RenCen. Or Ann Arbor, since I'm closer to UofM than the GM Tech Center in Warren.

Or even Allen Park or Dearborn. It's all the same uber-metro area known as SE Michigan.

Everyone update your usercp with a general location and it will appear under your name when you post.

Finally figured out how to update mine last week (I know, I'm slow) and added the state and sign line from my V-Rod forum (which I don't visit much anymore that I through customizing the bike).

I know it may sound anal but just before I hit "Submit Reply", I highlight the post and drop it on my email message page. That way I can click on Spell Check and then move it back to "Reply to Thread". Don't want to let all of you know how ignorant I really am.

You can see where I'm posting from and put me down as a junior Old Codger (53).

Thanks for the info. I can't live without spell check, as everyone can obviously tell from my threads!

It's not as good a spell checker but if you use Firefox browser they have a plugin you can download for an web dictionary. Highlight any word and right click and choose "search dictionary..." Brings up a new tab with the word if it's found and some suggestions if it's not.

Just to amplify this a bit, there's also an extension for Firefox called SpellBound (I'm using version 0.7.3). Right click in any text box, such as the one I'm writing this in, and with one click you can launch a spell checker window with all the usual features...suggestions, replace all, add to custom dictionary, etc. It's easier than cut-n-pasting my message into Outlook or Word for spell checking, which is what I used to do.
