re: Looking for Light at NFOEC "Lets look professional."

should be:

Let's look professional.

re: Looking for Light at NFOEC Ahem...

"Lets (sic) look professional" (?)

Your own grammar flub notwithstanding, I'm in total agreement with you on this one!

re: Looking for Light at NFOEC Touche. One cannot give advice unless one is willing to accept it. Thanks.

re: Looking for Light at NFOEC See! Some interest already.

re: Looking for Light at NFOEC That's the problem with using a spellchecker. "Lets" is a correct spelling, just not the right correct spelling. :)

By the way, and please correct me if I'm wrong, but don't imperatives require exclamation marks?

"Try using the correct verb tense.(!) Check a dictionary once in a while.(!) Review your message before hitting the enter key.(!) Lets look professional.(!)


PS: How do you spell "spellchecker", anyway? :)

re: Looking for Light at NFOEC Competely agree with you, S.G. ........

By the way - you dropped an apostrophe in "let's".

------------------------------------------------

Call me old fashioned, but what has happened to writing skills? I am constantly dismayed at the lack of proper grammar and spelling on these pages. Come on guys and gals, this does not leave a good impression of engineers/business types. Try using the correct verb tense. Check a dictionary once in a while. Review your message before hitting the enter key. Lets look professional.

To those who may want to respond with the old tired arguments about communication being much more important than grammar, don't bother. I've heard them all before and don't buy them.

S.G.

re: Looking for Light at NFOEC Yes, you are correct - an imperative does not require an exclamation mark but it is often used for emphasis.

re: Looking for Light at NFOEC I never use a dictionary or a spell checker. I get help from my wife and my kids. We have all the time in the world. All of us are unemployed.

Its better to be unemployed than being employed
and living in constant fear of being laid off.
Trust me... a lot of us are going to join
the unemployment club in coming months. Then
we can all spell check our messages and make
SuperGenius's day.

re: Looking for Light at NFOEC I agree,

One would wonder if being employed or unemployed is better off. These are interesting times.... Not too long ago companies used to pay you 5000$ on a good resume or if someone is hired. These days, it's a meat market (excuse the expression), the big question is : what is next ?

More misery or a big turn around ... I wish I have the answer.
