duko, deal with it. Or find a way to add a spell check for Fiberchuncks.

There are better thigns to worry about then some anal mispelling. :)

I usualy spell things wrong that have easyly reversed letters, due to some dislexia problems.

Patlabor, you're dislexic? Sorry to hear. :( However, it must have been quite a triumph to get where you are now as a programmer. For that we can quietly celebrate and I'll stop nagging you on spelling.

As for spell checking, yup, this message boards lacks it. I usually just copy/paste my longer posts into a simple little app I made to check spelling and grammer without a lot of overhead. If you want a copy, feel free to e-mail or PM me. :)

not full blown, just a bit. Didn't find out till recently. I used to think I was just a crapy typest.

now I KNOW I'm a crapy typest, and it's clinicly proven.

Yeah, I have some dyslexia too. I think it has something to do with being a geek :-) . I don't reverse letters or anything when I'm coding, but when I'm actually typing or writing with a pen and paper, I mix up letters all the time.

One time, someone called my company's tech support line. He gave me his password or credit card number or some such thing; it turned out he had dyslexia, and transposed some numbers, which I then turned back around and made correct :bonk: . Go figure out this weird issue for us, Dervish :-D

I think that the post was supposed to be "1.7g1".

The odd numbers are development builds. When Tim's happy with that version, he bumps the number to the next even one, and does an official release.

No, 1.7g2 will most probably be the last backwards compatible version, after that more changes are possible, however old and new clients and servers won't be able to interact. If new flags will make it into the first incomp. release is unknown.

Although 1.7g2 will be the last compatible version, I doubt that all of the changes we want to do will be implemented right away. Adding all of the changes, patches, etc in a single release proved to be sort of a disaster when we tried to do 1.8.
