I don't have a dictionary at my side when composing voice cards, but I do have an automatic spell checker installed in HyperCard. It beeps at me whenever I go awry. But as Paul will probably verify, I do not always heed the beeps.

Speaking of the beloved OED, would anyone here be interested in an Archipelago version of OED Scrabble? I had a friend once who only rarely saw her roommate. But they would interact by leaving a Scrabble board on the kitchen table next to an OED. Each person had 24 hours to come up with another word and both players were allowed (and encouraged) to use the OED to come up with particularly odd words.

There's probably some way to recreate this charming game in Archipelago, with each player adding one word per issue. Anyone interested?
