Can code be a substitute for a resistor? (noob alert!)

One could write an article on the frequency of homophone spelling errors appearing in these posts.

But I'm not going to.

AWOL:

Rhymes with "sync" ?

Homophone

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I suspect that an in depth study relating homophone misuse to poster's nationality and primary language would be quite depressing to those of us who are primary English speakers in the US... Just remember:

Dew knot trussed yore spell cheque or two fined awl missed aches.

That said, I also suspect that most spelling and grammatical errors here are due to the poster's primary language [u]not[/u] being English, and their grasp of my native language is much better than my grasp of any language other than English. So I give them a very big pass. (I may suggest a correction, but hopefully not in a condescending manor). Other spelling/word oddities may be region based. A few US vs. UK equivalencies: color == colour, truck == lorry, SPDT switch == SPCO switch, billion == milliard, etc.

Hmmm... what was the topic of this thread?

Yep but if you are dyslexic you don't have much choice do you.
