Due to some rather unfortunate (but not terribly damaging) typos of late, I have changed the settings in Thunderbird, which I use to send and receive email. Now, Thunderbird automatically checks the spelling before sending an email. Better that way. Safer. Less embarrassing.
The other day, I was emailing an old friend for the first time with these new settings, when I was surprised by the suggested alternative spelling for my friend’s name:
Operandi! How James Bond is that, like Modus Operandi! Oh, now I wonder what my spell check name would be. My friend Kieran would be Operandi, but what would I be? I must have already added my name to the computer’s dictionary – since Thunderbird skips over my name without comment – and so I may never know.
