I can use only English British, is this a honour or a requirement? :grin:

This is the language of the Lounge interface. You can post messages in American English, don't worry.
Best wishes,

This is probably a phpBB issue, I have seen similar on other phpBB forums.

Well, since we Noble British Persons invented it, it is clearly an honour for us to allow you to [mis]use it in your dialect! :burnup: :flee:

All my life I have tried multiplying really large numbers by zero.
That amounted to nothing.​​

Does this mean I need to get a British version of the IE Spell checker so I use the correct spelling? :grin:

That would certainly complement matters, but fortunately we are often indulgent towards our foreign cousins... :smile:

As an English major (who is official now that the student loans have been paid in full!) and Doc Specialist for "the Americas" at my gig in the real world, I can't bring myself to spell the word color with a "u"!! You can't make me! :nope:

BTW, good to "see" all your names again! Dave A, you were the first person ever to reply to a question I had in the really old lounge... remember the two panes? That was back in 1999! Your answer impressed me so much I'm still here all these years later! :clapping:
Love...
