Re: Another 360 Back on the road

The spell checker mods that are available use google to check the words.
Sometimes the check can slow down the forum.

I'll look into the option, but right now I'm just trying to get the photo issues ironed out.

I think that grammar can sometimes be a bigger problem than spelling anyway.
