Sorry to disappoint but all my figurines speak with a Yorkshire dialect (ask Max....) They're all OO scale and pretty small. I have some OO cars as well.
I sprayed one motherboard with reddish stone-effect paint, with a model of the Mars Lander digging into the CPU. I have some Apollo figures too. Maybe a Victorian theme would work, or I wonder what an Amish or Shaker diorama would look like. Hmmm...
I know all about custom dictionaries. However, since at least in "daytime" I'm using my employer's PC that I use for my paid work, I don't want to make changes that could result in embarassing errors in work product! This is especially important since I am certainly among the world's lousiest typists. It may take me a thorough proof-reading followed by 2 or 3 "post-edits" (thank you to the EET webmaster for adding this capability) to get to a clean copy of a post!
You can always add anything the Spiel Chucker trips over to your Custom Dictionary when its window pops up.
I've resisted adding "Warshington" to mine since that's my native-born DC prononciation, not a spelling.
I think Pennsylvania has several dialects all its own. My wife is from Pittsburgh, and after all these years she still sometimes says "this needs cleaned" instead of "this needs cleaning" or "this needs to be cleaned."
Somewhere I have a copy of "Bawlamer," a compendium of Baltimorese. To hear both the real thing and some imitations you can check out the HonFest for a Hon (think of Marge Simpson with a hair color other than blue).
"Surely thou art one of them; thy speech betrays thee."

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
