      ...and yes yours does have a spell checker. Mozilla Firefox has a spell checker built in.
      I use chrome 10 not firefox due to the recent javascript upgrade i wouldn't use firefox unless chrome wasn't working

      There is no real advantage to turning the router of every night.

      Reboot in the mornings might increase your speed a little until peak times and then it will probably need another reboot.

      The comment about the firmware upgrade is another good reason to leave it switched on at night. while firmware updates don't happen that often they are useful to receive as they usually fix bugs or add new functionality

      Americans spelling colour as color has drove me nuts over the years.

      Since almost all programming languages are American they wont compile or run if you don't spell it the American way.

      Has cause me more problems than a connect customer at peak times!!
