You don't understand genetic inheritance do you ?.

Hint: Both parents can carry silent genes that have no
effect, until they are combined in an offspring.


I'm betting both his parents could use both halves of their brain.

My mum had blue eyes and yet her parents both had brown eyes.

But you dont know who her real dad was.


There are many other traits that you can look both mental and physical, if you've watched programmes like
long lost family you can see such things as nose shape, chin, and many others. In todays world you can use DNA.

How about *asking* me if I had the latest dictionary file and that the
right one was enabled if you really wanted to help?


Not necessary, because your posts made it clear that you were using the
wrong dictionary.


Looks like your assumption made an ass of you then eh as I was using
the latest and most appropriate dictionary available for my newsreader
client and explained that I had to occasionally update it with new
words and different spellings ( so I already had a solution, thanks).


I have mentioned many a time (inc recently in a tread about Forte
Agent) stating exactly what version I was using.


But not which dictionary you were using.


See above re your incorrect assumptions it wasn't the most
appropriate.


No-one knew what dictionary you were using,


Anyone could have *asked*. Assumptions keep making an 'ass' of you eh.

and it isn't in the headers
that bizarrely you think we should monitor.


Nope, something else you have twisted again in your desperate attempt
to deflect your own ****up(s).

I didn't ask for help. You offered it when none was really / ever
available.

Get a more appropriate newsreader...


I hope to be using a later version as I migrate onto another PC and
there may well be a more up-to-date / appropriate dictionary available
for that.


Thank goodness.


For whom? You having to read a non UK spelling of 'councillor' in a
d-i-y group? Oh, poor baby. ;-(

None of this excuses your *attitude* of not asking and then you crying
because (once again) it's backfired on you.


None of this excuses your demand that we all monitor your headers,


No such demand was ever made. It's something you desperately clinging
onto to save you falling further down that hole (but you lost control
of that ages ago).

a
strange demand if ever there was one


And of course there never was, it's just something you and the
Squeaker Goblin tried to fabricate to try to save face (again, that
boat sailed ages ago).

as it wouldn't tell us what
dictionary you were using.


No, but the information about the version might give you some clues
what the options there weren't.

Spike. 'Tim, are you using the latest dictionary and language
available?'


It isn't a question of 'latest', it's a question of the 'most appropriate'.


It would be both.

Tim. Yes mate, I'm running a fairly old version of FA and it's set to
the latest English dictionary file there is ...


So why did it have the word 'councilor' in it,


Because it was based on the American dictionary I'm guessing?

and auto-correct from the
British English word you claimed you used??


See above.

https://www.forteinc.com/agent/download-all.php

Every version after mine only supports 'English (International)', not
'English (British)' so what are the chances of my version supporting
anything more appropriate?

But you keep digging trying to prove black is white and suffering more
darkness and Faceplanting as you do so.

The facts, as presented at the time were and still are 100% correct
and relevant.

I didn't ask for your or anyone else's help on the matter.
I was already running the latest / most appropriate (only) dictionary
*anyway*.

I add new words as they come up *anyway*.

Anyone who actually wanted to help who wasn't an asshat troll would
have *asked* me what dictionary I was running and been satisfied by
the reply.

Anyone thinking they were being 'clever' with any reply would
therefore simply Faceplant (and in your case, continue to do so for
some self destructive / troll / left brainer reasons).

I hope the carbon dioxide isn't building up down that hole now as you
might start to experience what all the pigs and chicks suffer as they
pass out ...

Are we having fun yet?

Cheers, T i m

Of course not but why did you ever assume it was (is your problem).


It stemmed from your suppressed anger that emerged in the form of you
demanding that everybody read your headers, research the client you were
using, and then provide a solution for you.

In the real world, you DIY...

I have been tweaking / adding / honing my HA system all along, not
just moving it of a RPi an onto an Odroid but upgrading the Zigbee
coordinator (so re-pairing 35 devices) and building several new (ESP32
based) nodes to do all sorts of things.


See what I mean by 'displacement activity'?


How can it be 'displacement' when I've been doing both simultaneously
(but please keep digging)?


You need hand-holding here too?

You don't seem to have worked out that it was obvious that you were
using the wrong dictionary.

It's up to you to find and install the right one, not least in the
spirit of DIY vbg

Do you feel the need to have the last word?

Bwhahaha .... you sad sick fcuk! I mean you really are aren't you,

Did you realise you were saying all this in public, where people can

Ah, again, you think it's actually a question when:

1) It was rhetorical

and

2) I wouldn't ask / trust you to mow my lawn.

But how could you from down that (now) *very* deep hole (oh, and that
wasn't a question either).

Fat chance (you are a left brainer). Well, not till the CO2 levels in
the hole you are in get high enough ...

Cheers, T i m

p.s. Whilst typing this I'm monitoring the test of the 10 bit ADC
input on the ESP32 and it monitoring the charge on a 12V battery from
an Optimate 2 intelligent charger. I've set up a potential divider
that puts the input voltage (on the ESP32) at around 500mV (1.1V FSD)
and then scaled it up to display the 13.xx volts that is actually on
the battery in Home Assistant (that then logs it).

The voltage doesn't need to be absolute but I might need to look into
the input impedance of the ESP32 ADC function to be sure my chosen PD
resistor values (1.5M/100k ohm) aren't being influenced by the ESP32
itself.
