You need a touchpad. A mouse won't work.

I always seem to be one generation of technology behind.

You know, I'm almost kind of used to people confusing they're/there/their and your/you're, but stairs/stares? That's a new one. z7_no.gif

Lol. I saw that post in the teaser so no context. I read it twice and interpreted it as a poorly constructed sentence explaining how whenever he brings his tripod there are always a bunch of stairs to climb. I thought he had one of those full size 3' tripods he was lugging around.

I reckon that's autocorrect doing its thing.

My wife and I love that site!  That is why I don't use autocorrect BTW.

Yesterday while working in my office, I could overhear a co-worker in the main area ask out loud, "is 'lose' one 'o' or two?"

 

A few people responded, "one" and he said, "oh okay, it just never looks right."

 

I think I posted this in the "lose/loose" thread, but I've always suspected that the reason that word is misspelled so often is because, phonetically, the "o" in lose and loss sound different, so people assume "lose" is spelled with two "o's".

I always tell 'em that "loose" has 2 "O"s in it like "stool". They rarely forget after that.
