  • Explains why you can't always trust the spell checker

    I currently teach Introduction to Computing to seniors who have not used a computer before. I take a copy with me to class and encourage them to use it when they have forgotten how to do something. They are getting quite hooked on it because the index is good and it means that they can solve some of their problems without reference to me..
