Crap, spell checking is no good if you still pick the wrong word..... Spell check on the phone doesn't offer as many alternatives as the computer...

New predictive text system in latest iPhone update this morning.
I'll try it a few times before I trust it though, although I notice it is always worst on messenger, so wondering if that has it's own spellchecker.

Slightly worried about the vocabulary that your spellchecker is familiar with!!!

Certainly brought a giggle to this household.

Slightly disppointed how this thread has turned out,

The first post pictures are not as good as they could have been, but I know for a fact not very long ago the person in question could not even manage to get an image on this forum, the last time he sold a few items he sent the photographs to me and I listed them on his behalf, so he has made some steps in the right direction and is trying to get upto speed with making a forum post as worth while as possible as previously he has posted seeking help to be told "A pic would be nice" or words to that effect, so he has tried once again and not really had a good experiance, yes some have been to the point and direct, fine,

But a bit of slack at time does not go a miss either,

And yes the thanks for nothing maybe was not the best of responses

he is a good friend and has helped me many times in the past.

Chris

Chris:

It would have better if the OP had got more involved as the thread progressed, getting to know other members is a good way of overcoming many issues, and basically we are all here as hobbyists.

Hi, only just noticed this post, but feel the chap who first asked the question had a very harsh response to his question, surely we are supposed to be trying to be helpful to other fellow enthusiasts rather than alienating them? To the original poster I have a simaliar engine complete & will try to help you if I can, please feel free to pm me some clearer photos & will try to help, seems like you drew the short reply’s, Martin.
