Arabists vs RadicalistsSorry for the looooong delay... I was kidnapped by an Arabist with Strabismus, it was rough!
Thankfully the Radicalists over at Craigslist rescued me so that I could continue with my important job of exposing the lies which most people call spellcheckers.

Shiney New Hotmail!Check that out! The new Windows Live Mail totally rocks!
Unfortuntely it only works in Internet Explorer, but it truely gives the feeling that Windows Live will be the IE "Killer Application".
This truely has the "look and feel" of a windows application and from my couple tests works great.
Obviously the first thing I check is how well the spell checking system works. Windows Mail Live has inline spell checking, so unlike gmail you don't have to click on the spell check button, but like Word if you spell a word incorrectly you get that red squiggly line underneath it. I instictively right-clicked on it and got exactly what I expected, a list of words to choose from. What I didn't expect was the option to "Ignore All" or "Add to Dictionary" both options which are not available in Gmail.
I've also signed up for the hosted service and have stuck one of my domains up. It will be interesting to see how that turns out :)

CahokiaThe word of the week comes thanks to Thunderbird!
Thanks to Wikipedia, we now know that Cahokia was a Native American city located near Collinsville in the west-central part of the U.S. state of Illinois, across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, Missouri, in the American Bottom floodplain. Cahokia is best known for large, man-made earthen structures, known popularly as mounds, the largest of which is Monk's Mound; as well as its timber circles named Woodhenge after Stonehenge, as both structures marked the solstices, equinoxes and other astronomical events. Cahokia Mounds was designated a National Historic Landmark on July 19, 1964. Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site, designated as a World Heritage Site in 1982, protects 2200 acres (8.9 km²) of the area of the mounds (but more of the site is on private land) and is the site of ongoing archaeological excavations. Cahokia is one of the best known sites of the Mississippian culture and the term "Cahokian" is sometimes used to describe the culture.
