Once again I offer to proofread those articles that are in early. If you want your article to be proofed before publication get it in to Pete ASAP.
I'll be submitting my article "Writing about Writing" this month. (and it's already proofed :D )

OO's grammer checker is rather poor actually, I used it when I was Proofing those articles that I recieved for QBX and it missed virtually all the errors. When it comes to editing, you need a h...

In order to write good English, you need to make an effort to do so, until it becomes part of your style. You also need to have reference material on hand, like a good dictionary (in print or online), a thesaurus, and a good, college-level grammer book that covers the basics that Pete mentions. If ...

I'm going to start a series on Copyright and various liscening issues. While it isn't related to the business of coding in QB/FB it is something that people that write code do need to think about, especially now that FB allows us to use so many more libraries then were possible with QB.
