  1. Perhaps you have your spell checker set to American English ("toward") as opposed to British English ("towards")?

    Be that the case or not, I do admire the spell checker. That needless, extraneous "s" on "toward" and similar words bugs the fuck out of me.

  2. Those "extra" s's were put in their by the State, Tom, to keep would-be revolutionaries worked up over trivialities.

  3. Did the state misspell "there" for you too? ;-)

  4. No, that was courtesy of Apple.

  5. Well, I won't object to that any more then. The trufry market has spoken.
