    Default Simple English Forum

    Yes, I agree with you a spelling forum - great, but my pet hate are computer nerd messages where the content is not at all clear unless one is also a computer nerd.

    Inexplicable error messages I hate most. Where can you find a list of Microsoft error messages, especially to tell you which ones are lying and which are correct. Mostly when it says you've entered your password or login wrong it's not you at all but your ISP. I hate the way they always blame my system.

    How about this, what does it mean? Is it my fault, my ISP's fault, my clients fault or his ISP's fault, and how do I tell him when he'll get his order?

    In that wonderful pome someone put up here, "I halve a spelling chequer" it was odd that the one word that could have been changed and wasn't was "key" when "quay" would have followed the meaning of the thing to a tea.
