Auto-completely annoying

There are two auto-completes that are really pissing me off right now. First of all, my BlackBerry has suddenly started converting "a " into "on on ". So whenever I space off an a, it suddenly gets replaced. If I hit backspace once, it converts it back. On on real fucking annoyance, I have to say.

My second one came today. i’m working on SharePoint implementation, within which there is a concept of My Sites. If I refer to Your My Site in an email (edited by Word), it changes it to You’re My Site the moment I space off the y of My; one can only assume to avoid the mistaken punctuation of the Owen Paul track You’re My Favourite Waste Of Time. Ho hum.

    For the BB problem, you can fix it: Go into Options->AutoText and you can set whatever it converts into whatever.

    Sounds like you have the Laurie Anderson avatar switched on, sometimes these silicon chips can through up a nicely disconnected turn of words.

    Use of the Blackberry and SharePoint annoys the annoyance gods. Thou hast earned these and further, potentially life-changing annoyances.
