Spell Check is Go! (At least when you ask Firefox nicely.)

You probably remember the smile that spread across your face during Drupal training when we told you about Mozilla Firefox's built-in spell checking.  Next came the crushing disappointment when we finished our sentence "...and right now it doesn't work."

Well invite that smile back!  Today is the warmest day since winter began, and we've figured out how you can use spell check!  This shouldn't replace things like reading the text you write, but it's a useful tool to catch things that you might miss.

Television is a funny medium. It brings us together through shared viewing experiences, and it isolates us in a pool of light in a darkened room.  We look to the ubiquitous box for information, forgetting that what we see is produced and edited to fit a format. What we receive is someone’s creation.
