shivbzik word processor
« on: January 01, 2010, 01:45:50 PM »
This shouldn't really be on a thread of it's own, i know, but i can't find a place to put it!
Anyways, you know when you type on microsoft works word processor or any other like program, when you spell a word wrong it gets underlined in red and when you right click on it there are spelling sugestions? Well, when you type "shivbzik" the suggestion is "showbiz"! how funny. it sort of almsot fits, thought, because Anastasia was a sort of little actress, imitating guests etc.  :) it can get really annoying, though, because the word processor thinks 'Nicholeivna', 'Romanovs', ect. are not words!

Well, Microsoft Word is an American program as far as I know. They mark some words/names wrong because it can't really know if something's a last name or a mistaken spelling for a word/name. And it's only for American English; they say 'colour' is wrong so how could they know that 'Shivbzik' is a nickname? But yes, it is annoying.
