[Flies out using jetpack.]

Posted by on November 29, 2007

Maybe I’m wrong about this, but I bet Joyce couldn’t have written the way that he wrote if he’d had to constantly battle Microsoft Word’s idea of what constitutes a proper sentence.

I have managed to make it stop red-lining the words it thinks I’ve misspelled. (You know, those esoteric things like proper names, or the word “blog.”) But the wavy green line under sentence fragments or long — not even run-on, just long — sentences are proving trickier to eliminate.

When you are working to eliminate your inner critic, there’s nothing like a big prissy computer program coming along and spoiling things with its stupid green pen.

This round to you, Microsoft. But the game is far from over.
