warm, fuzzy and eccentric

Dunno if I'd go along with warm and fuzzy (well, maybe fuzzy, given an appropriate defintion of fuzzy) but I certainly find it a usable tool. It will find typoes and misspellings. You just can't count on it to give you reasonable alternate choices, but there are other tools that will do that better than many spellcheckers I have seen. It also provides sempiternal* hours of mindless amusement (simple pleasures for simple minds).

Ænigma sometimes ate my posts after checking them

sorry, this has absolutely nothing to do with this thread (gee, this is a first, huh?) but i cannot resist sharing a joke that hyla told me not long ago (it's a favorite of his son's and, as predicted, it delighted my 4 year old as well):

Q: Why is 6 afraid of 7??

A: Because 7 8 9.

Pace, Pace, BY. I suspect that PikaPooch is a very young person.

On that assumption, let me offer you, PikaP, a little gratuitous (you can look that up) advice: If you are interested in foreign languages, and I hope you are, then arrange to learn one or more. Start as soon as possible. the younger you start, the easier it is to learn and you will do better. We here know lots of languages, so you can ask for advice here.
