    Well all!

    After more than a month of unsuccessful tries to log in to The Gauge, post replies, etc., I am finally able to join the great group of modelers once more.

    This all started when the format was changed, etc.

    Glad to be back on. Will have some more projects in the works posted soon.

    Eye have a spelling chequer;
    It came with my pee see.
    It plainly marques four my revue
    Miss steaks eye cannot sea.

    When aye strike a quay or right a word

    Weather aye am wrong oar Wright -
    It shows me strait aweigh

    As soon as a mist ache is maid
    It nose bee fore two late
    And eye can put the error rite.
    Its rarely, rarely grate.

    Its letter perfect in it's whey
    My chequer tolled me sew.

    Having trouble with your english? :p

    PRESS ANNOUNCEMENT - European Commission - 1st June 2004

    The European Union commissioners have announced that agreement has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for European Communications, rather than German, which was the other possibility. As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty's Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five-year phased plan for what will be known as EuroEnglish (Euro for short).

    In the first year, "s" will be used instead of the soft "c." Sertainly, sivil servants will resieve this news with joy. Also, the hard "c" will be replaced with "k". Not only will this klear up konfusion, but typewriters kan have one less letter.

    There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced by "f". This will make words like fotograf" 20 persent shorter.

    In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkorage the removal of double letters, which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of silent "e"s in the languag is disgrasful, and they would go.

    By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" by "z" and "w" by " v".

    During ze fifz year, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou", and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters.

    After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubls or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech ozer.

    Ze drem vil finali kum tru.

    After all the 'English Spelling Lessons' Marc will never be able to communicate w/ the 'Gauge' again. :oops:

    The above was worse then the crash. :D

    Maybe my weathering will improve after the 'Spelling' lessons. ;)
