I love that word: it’s the Californian for “brilliant” and suffers from equal Hypobole. If Fred Sanger were to offer the right change in the market in Saffron Walden, he’d be told he was “Brilliant”; walking through a drugstore parking lot in Santa Cruz last weekend I heard the following snatch of dialogue:
“The car’s over there”

But what David Bartlett has done is pretty much awesome or brilliant: he has completely rewritten the crappy OpenOffice GB spellchecker files, and produced something that actually understands the rules of English grammer. You’ll find it here.
