So what I often transpose letters. I don't spend time proofreading
something as trivial as a usenet messsage.

Got cut off some how.

Actually I thought I had decided not to send it, and came back and some
how hit the enter key.


A long time ago I was working for small airline and I was asked to evaluate
any letters from the pilots that were sent to flight ops. I was acting as
filter for the Director of Flight Ops. Now, as a class, pilots aren't too
bright and none of them can spell but when I hit the fourth misspellled word
I'd throw the thing in the trash can. "This guy can't know what he's
talking about." It was done at a subconscious level. It takes me a while
to figure things out but I shared their contempt for spelling in my own
writing. It finally dawned on me that if I look down at bad speellers then
other people must look down my work. It's human nature and you can"t fight
it. If you want your work to be accepted then you have to project an image
of intellect.

Its one thing to have the occasional typo, but typing a constant run-on
of misspelled and non-punctuated text just screams "I'm a moron!" to the
world.


Actually, what it screams is "I am dyslexic".

The ignorant often confuse dyslexia with (e.g.) being a moron.

However, failure to proofread, perhaps especially if dyslexic, does
indicate that he doesn't expect us to value what he's writing, which in
turn suggests that he doesn't think its worth much either. In a world
full of ignorance, a wise dyslexic would use a spelling and/or grammar
checker on anything he wanted taken seriously.

But there are more and more small diesels that run just as fast as
gasoline engines. There's no fundamental limit thats any different than
a gasoline engine, really, but up until now there's not been a demand
for high-RPM diesels.


When I was reading about the Volkswagen TDI engine, I vaguely remember
coming across someone who said that the redline of that engine was set
by the speed which which the burning fuel expanded.

Sounds rather fundamental to me - but, then again, I'm a computer guy.

Sorry, I missed that memo.
For the record, I disagree with you. I cannot spell, but I'm no idiot. Some
people are good at math, others are athletic, and others can spell. Just
because it's easy for you doesn't mean it is for others.

Wandering aimlessly about the Web, I heard Sport Pilot say:
You have most of it right. Some things you have wrong,

1. Desiel injection timing is differant than on an Otto engine. The
fuel is injected during the intake cycle on the Otto engine and the
fuel is injected during the ignition cycle on the Desiel. On the
Desiel the fuel injection cycle starts just before TDC and ends well
after TDC. The fuel ignites as soon as it hits the hot air.

etc., etc. --- SNIP ---

It's Diesel, not "Desiel".

Well if you're going to get picky, it's "Auto" engine, not "Otto" engine.

MJC

No, it is OTTO, named after the guy who invented the "otto cycle"
engine - just like Diesel is named after the guy who invented the
compression ignition or "diesel cycle" engine.

Easy is not a factor. All things worth doing require effort. What is
"cannot"?

True, but _everyone_ can take the time to re-read their post, and everyone
can learn basic rules, like their-there, to-too-two. By not doing that,
people that can't spell _do_ look like morons.

They should run spell check if'in they know they have a speeling problem,
also.
