    Grammar on newtek's front page!!

    I'm no english teacher, and yes i understand that some things on the Newtek site may be written by people who don't have english as a first language, but it just looks very unprofessional with grammar and spelling like this:

    LightWave 3D 8 introducted some full pledged features to create and edit bones right in Layout giving you full flexibility when it comes to rigging. Also introducted in LW 8 is IL (inverse Kinematics) Booster which applies IK Handles on all created bones automatically. You can also apply dynamics to bones using this tool.

    I'm not being pompous i hope, i just like stuff like this to be right... it creates a good impression! Just delete the 't's please? and change the "pledged" to fledged, then the 'IL' to IK.

    Have you read the LW [8] on-line manual? Better take some aspirin and sit down.

    It appears NewTek let the Intern play on the computer today.

    Glad it's not just me then! It's a pet hate i have... and i can usually forgive typos where the odd letter is replaced by one next to it on the keyboard, but this just got on my tits.

    Gravid means pregnant in English too but it's usually used by biologists in a more technical sense

    If English is your first language, you should know it's 'losing' and not 'loosing'!

    Yeah that's what i thought may have happened and why i tried not to insult anyone!

    Much better! Although isn't it fully fledged? Doesn't really matter, sorry for being so fickle too!

    Do you remember Apple's comeback slogan of the mid 90's -

    Think Different

    Grammatically speaking, it should have been Think Differently. That always drove me crazy.
