A Word to the unwise -- program's grammar check isn't so smart

By TODD BISHOP
SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER REPORTER

Microsoft the company should big improve Word grammar check.

No, your eyes aren't deceiving you. That sentence is a confusing jumble.
However, it is perfectly fine in the assessment of Microsoft Word's built-in
grammar checker, which detects no problem with the prose.

Sandeep Krishnamurthy thinks Microsoft can do a lot better.

blah i wish.. madman are so inconsistant with what they plan to release, what
they have licenced and what they plan to licence. i picked up the project a-ko
box from a place called deepdiscountdvd. they charged almost 1/2 the rrp, and
their international postage rates are pretty good. the box set consists of 3
dvds - project a-ko 1, 2, 3, 4, uncivil wars and a sound track cd, as well as a
stack of dvd rom extras.

my current fav is genshiken which ive been seeing as fansubs at unsw
screenings.
