Hi guys,
There is a program on at 9pm on National Geographic (Sky channel 526) called Seconds From Disaster and is all about the Kings Cross underground fire in the 1980s.

Just thought you might be interested! :D

Cheers,

I can understand why Tom has said that, but I can also understand what Sprog is saying. It is only a forum, not a formal letter or something, and surely everyone knows what I mean when I say Program for TV/Radio, rather than Programme...(I assume!)

Anyway, was a good show! :D

A forum is a good way of improving language skills, it is not instant messenger, it is not a mobile phone, it isn't somewhere where you can just talk about rubbish with no punctuation or grammar.

Cirrect me if I'm wrong, but surely that is only a small fault, and there were no spelling mistakes or misplaced punctuation, just a word used in the wrong way. Anyway, matter closed if that's possible!:D

I don't use it! I use MS Word as my spell checker (just as good), and it didn't pick it up - as, it is spelt correctly - just in the wrong context ;)

Just *had* to be posted...

Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong
Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew. - Sauce unknown


Though I did just do a quick reply as a "friendly reminder" to Rich, I didn't mean for a thread hijack...

Tom was giving a friendly reminder about the definition of a program(me)... and the thread became a flamewar... so *click*.
