RE: looking to improve = spelling/gramer and other
The Elements of Style

Eats, Shoots & Leaves

are both excellent. As far as spelling, just google it first.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Honestly, I think learning to automatically edit everything I write before I post it does wonders. I am baffled at how many errors in both spelling and grammar show up in what I write. I ALWAYS read my entire post again before posting, and make all those little corrections like a comma here, and a capital there.

Shit, I still find typos in my past posts all the time. I hate em godammit!

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Yes, exactly that.

No Wrong.

So very wrong. When it comes to degrees of wrongness you are on the most wrong end of the scale.


You see, Kunoxian? No one is perfect (except Chas).

This is about communication not perfection. You code. We decode (if we can).

Higher standards are expected of some ... particularly those of us who have the audacity and/or arrogance to correct others. We expect to be challenged and we welcome it because it helps us improve.


Don't aim for perfection.... yet.

The suggestions above are all valid.

My offer is still open.

Not my fault!

It was the cult in which I was raised.
