I know, I've gone on about this before.But today it's buging the crap out of me and, this being my LJ, I'll talk about it if I want to.

The use of incorrect grammar is really bothering me today. I'm seeing just about everyone use "a" when they mean "an", and over the past few weeks, more and more people have started saying "don't" as opposed to "doesn't". So-called creative spelling has sunk to new lows, particularly among blind people. Why send these people to school if your intent is to not teach them anything? Seems like a phenomenal waste of tax dollars to me. Typos are bad enough. I make those all the time, and nobody is more frustrated by them as am I. But outright lack of knowledge of basic spelling? It's inexcusable. But it's as though Jed Clampett and his family had taken over the school system. Yee hah, we done don't have to study our timeses and our guzintahs, we's all goin' to the see-ment pond while there are still people in the world who know how to make them. People are just stupid,really stupid.

I love French (Freedom) fries very much. I decided as a kid that Friday was going to be French Fry day, and that my mom was always going to make me French (Freedom) fries on Fridays. Mom didn't buy this reasoning. But here, despite my damaged ego after this chhildhood heartache, is the French (Freedom) fry poll.

Since Monday, not a greatdeal has happened with respect to my computer. Freedom Scientific has not replied to my e-mail. this is disappointing but not surprising, since they made it clear to me that they would only help me over the phone. Unless I get sick, I will have no holidays until July 1, Canada Day. I also have an e-mail in to Serotek to see if they can help me. It's only been just over a day since I sent that in, so we'll see what becomes of it. I don't know if it's this Catalyst Center or something else, but I can't imagine it's a hardware issue. I'd think display driver, but SAToGo apparently has nothing to do with the display driver. But everything else non-screen-reader I've tried seems to work, so I just don't know. This makes no sense. I appreciate the encouragement people have given me on this issue.
