Kid's toys?

The Wii is SWMBO's toy. The sprout and I just get to play with it sometimes!

<--- Just spent about an hour playing Metroid Prime 3.

Prime looks fun, but FPS games make me motion sick in about 20 seconds (I'm fun to fly with too...)

We have no kids...the Wii is ours. We like to bowl, and I've been renting stuff off Gamefly.com Nothing amazing yet but I have the Mario and Sonic sports games coming, along with mario galaxy.

It's pretty good. The controls take some getting used to, since pointing is both your aiming cursor AND direction. Learning to move in a straight line is a little hard, but strafing enemies is dead easy. So far, it's fun, and fairly challenging. I'm not big into FPS games either, but I am enjoying this one.

While it wouldn't have helped your first post (nothing was misspelled!) I use this freeware spell checker. There are many others available as well.

GNU Aspell

How do you apply that within a program already running?
