God not that old chestnut again :lol:
Im sure he already told us he was not connected to f1 automotive / CRD performance in any way shape or form whatsoever and someone from f1/CRD came on to confirm or something ? So it all must be true ....

and he doesn't seem aware of the difference between no and know.........

Or anything about capital letters and punctuation. Or am I just being pedantic?

:lol: you're being pedantic :lol:
(Hope i got that right or should i say 'write' now)
My kids are bloody terrible at spelling, grammar and punctuation. They just don't get taught it in schools nowadays, you should see the drivel they type to each other on Facebook chat. Makes no sense at all....i despair sometimes. Now i know I'm not that great myself. If i have anything important i always have to get it proofed by my sister, who is an english teacher or one of my mates who is a journalist. I cant trust myself. Or my wife for that matter. We are both high functioning dyslexic's.

Tubbs Capital I :lol:

Dislexia would explain the great mind then! I could not read untill I was 8 years old after getting lessons. By the age of 9 my reading age was upto 16! My spelling is still a bit poor but the big advange of dislexia is problems solving :wink:

Dai, are you talking about my great mind or your's :lol:
Yes dyslexic's are good problem solvers. You just develop coping strategies from early on. Same as you, i was a late developer. Didn't do very well at school. Managed to get an apprenticeship at vauxhall. Which was only day release at college. Thats when it got picked up really. And my wife got picked up at degree level. She had managed to get 7 A grade G.C.S.E and 3 A levels.
Luckily the schools are better at spotting things like high functioning dyslexic's earlier. My eldest is an absolute A grade student. High reading age etc. but he has just been given extra time in exams, a laptop with dyslexic spell checkers ( they are different, if you haven't got one you wouldn't believe the difference they make) and 20min breaks. He will do well i reckon !

It does seem to run in familys! My dad is but never actualy diagnosed, he was lucky that his mum was a teacher and relised that he was not learning to read at school and taught him hereself.

My Brother is very bad and still stuggles with reading and writing anything is a challenge for him. One of my sisters was similar to me and managed to work around it after receiving the lessons. MY neice however in Scotland could not get the extra help untill she was in secondary school and had fallen to far behind by the time she started getting help :(

I do remeber watching a program on the TV years ago and the design firm that the program was about would only employ Dislexic staff as dislexics have a better ability to think 3 dimensionaly.

Given the right support dislexia in most cases is not a problem but an advantage.

It is always interesting why you find out that some clever scientist or inventor is/was dislexic :D

No I've got a Dog. I have considered the GOD one and logicaly he can not exist....

It is more a case of having problems with sounding words out especialy where the are rules for how the sounds change and know one tells you what they.

Biggest problem for me is remeber things like is it mait or mate. Texp speak solves that problem m8

Messers jobs and wozniac from apple...thats why they are easier to use than a pc for dyslexics. And they did alright for themselves, well Steve didn't because he carked it quite early. I think he left his remaining share to wosniac though. Who hasn't had anything to do with apple since the early days. But still a shareholder on a salary. Nice job if you can get it eh ?
