I used Correct Grammar for a few months, but I wasn't happy with it and,
when I upgraded my computer I didn't bother to reinstall it. I think it was
right less than half the time.

It picked up a few of my naughty writing habits but, like an earlier grammar
checker I tried, it was designed to catch common Californian errors, and
didn't do well on my British English. I can't remember details.
