Spell checker isn't hot rod friendly!

Jon; I discovered that the spell checker looks at dragster as a misspelling! What gives!?!

It's a "custom" dictionary -- we can add words. Here's the addition list so far from the past few years, with your suggestions from your first post in this thread:

dragster dragsters gasser gassers pic pics internet sig sigs Willys username usernames IP online url img warpage Camaro Astrodome unibody gauge rodder rodders hotrodded internet dns techy dropdown datacenter datacenters php webpage webpages Chevelle Quadrajet Edelbrock Prix Bondo hotrodding hotrodder hotrodders


Let me know if you can come up with any others, and I'll add them to the list. In regard to proper nouns, we can't add EVERY make/model of car and company name -- it would be too many words. But 100 or so custom words should be fine, without slowing down the spellchecker too much.
