• BTW...

    From Ardith Hinton@1:153/716 to alexander koryagin on Tue Feb 13 00:06:48 2018
    Hi, Alexander! Recently you wrote in a message to Ardith Hinton:

    Imho everything OK: "I was", "you were", except the
    first sentence, which, probably, had to be:

    [...]

    However, probably, I should have been written "IMHO,
    everything is OK" ;)


    I'm glad to see that when you read my quotation of the original you noticed the inconsistency between the spelling of two acronyms within the same sentence & added the missing verb.

    Now, take a good look at "I should have been written". Seems to me you might want to add a letter or subtract a word there... [chuckle].

    Hi alexander -- on Feb 13 2012 at 17:40, you wrote:

    I think that finding errors is a very useful thing. Probably, it
    can be as captivating as fishing. At least fishing in Russia. Can
    you imagine that some Russian people like fishing despite -20C
    outdoors.

    Search the internet for "ice-fishing Canada". :-)

    Ah! Why on earth I put "been" there? ;-) Probably, I spend too
    little time practicing my English. Otherwise, I would have written
    it better.

    True! :-)


    Cheers... Dallas

    Hi, Ardith Hinton! How are you?
    on Monday, 13 of February, I read your messsage to alexander koryagin
    about "BTW..."

    Imho everything OK: "I was", "you were", except the
    first sentence, which, probably, had to be:

    However, probably, I should have been written "IMHO,
    everything is OK" ;)

    I think that finding errors is a very useful thing. Probably, it can be as captivating as fishing. At least fishing in Russia. Can you imagine that
    some Russian people like fishing despite -20C outdoors.
