    Today was the first time (I think) I submitted a substantial post or thread where spell-check came up empty. Thanks to the guys @ HTF my spelling, typing and sentence structuring has really improved. Maybe they can start a couple of other forums to help out some other aspects of my life? Come on now, keep it clean! (Dammit! Miss-spelled "substantial"...TWICE!!).

    It should be 'have'. [​IMG] More than one noun (spelling, typing, and sentence structuring) requires 'have'. A single noun requires 'has'.

    Also "sentence structure" would work better than "structuring". You're using "typing" and "spelling" as nouns, so it is a little awkward to have the third item in the list be a verb. [​IMG]

    What? you thought you were going to catch a break around here? [​IMG]

    I thought about that too, Joseph. In the end, I figured 'structuring' was being used as a noun just as 'typing' and 'spelling'.

    I had "structure" first, thats why "has" is there. When I changed to "structuring" (which maybe I shouldn't have. Hell, I don't know) I forgot to change "has" to "have". That's what usually happens with me. A self promoted pat on the back is quickly followed by two anonymous kicks in the *ss!
