I frequently find myself writing blocks of end-user facing text that are inserted into various Workflow UI components.  There's no built-in spellcheck capability, so my mediocre typing accuracy has a bad habit of showing up far too often.

I'm sure there are ton of these sites, but this is the one I've been using for a few weeks now. It's a painless experience to paste in the text, get corrections and copy the results back out.  I've only been using the English dictionary, but supposedly it has support for 27 languages.

A practical example:

General/ Off-topic Discussion: ‘How do I become an MVP?’ is one question which keeps ringing in most of our minds. Quite a few of you had also sent me an email asking the same. Well, I must agree that the awareness of the MVP program is less among the tech folks. Let me start explaning.. The thoughts which are mentioned in this article are just my understandings about the program, being an MVP for a couple of years!

First of all, Most Valuable Professional (MVP) is not a certification., Its an Award! – Its a mode of recognition which Microsoft gives for individuals who are technology experts and most importantly, who play a role and are keen in sharing their expertise with the Community. So if your question is, “I have completed my MCTS or MCAD.. what are the next steps towards being a MVP?” – You must re-think on your question.!

The buzz word cloud can be a little confusing from lay man points of view when compared to internet. But when it has been presented in a proper way this can be an effective mechanism for unmanned handling of IT services.

To go in to a more technical term, let me quote an example, where a server has been failed in the Data Center and it is of an important thing and may cause a serious damage in terms of profit to the end customer. In this case, if a cloud workflow, has been implemented such as a policy engine and an deployment system which acts like a software as a service then, the failed server can be automatically recovered with the corresponding data embedded in the same.

Diving deep in to the cloud, we can also write a cloud workflow in such a manner that it will also act on the Virtual machines. For example if a Virtual machine fails, then an event will be triggered, upon capturing the event, the workflow starts with backing up of the data in the Vm and then...
