Could one of you from the software clan enlighten me?
How far away are we from developing a word processor
with the ability to "learn" the common mistakes made by 
the user.  For example, I often mistakenly type "wtih" 
instead of "with".  Seems like after a few spell check 
sessions, the program should learn to automatically 
scan the text, recognize my idiosyncratic mistakes,
and make the necessary corrections.  Much less time
would be spent spell checking.  Just an idea that will 
hopefully make some extropian rich and me less
