    Default Typo in Context Menu Entry

    Just an FYI for you...

    The context menu entry for FileAlyzer (1.5.5.0) contains a mis-spell:

    "Analyse file with FileAlyzer"

    That should be "Analyze" - with a Z (not an S).

    Unless of course this was an intentional joke stemming from the original typo that led to the program's name - in which case you can ignore me.

    Thanks, updated it in the installer for the next version

    Looked into the dictionary: "analyse" is British English, "analyze" American English. And since I'm a native speaker of neither, receiving more british in Ireland and more American on the Internet, I guess it's easy to mix up (even though those two - "s" vs. "z" and "o" vs. "ou" etc. all follow the same pattern and should be easy to remember )

    Ha! You're correct, it can be spelled with an "S" in British English.

    I'm familiar with "O" vs. "OU", but didn't know this one.

    I actually did a dictionary check first, but my locally installed dictionary is American English only. Should have done an online check.

    Still, the "Z" version seems to be the more universally accepted version - even according to the online dictionaries (which I suppose is strange when you consider that "analysis" is never spelled "analyzis"...).

    It would also be more consistent to use the "Z" since the program name is "FileAlyzer" and not "FileAlyser".

    You probably already caught it, but the change would also need to be made in the FoldAlyzer context menu entry:

    "Analyse folder with FoldAlyzer" -> "Analyze folder with FoldAlyzer"

    So is anything else coming in the next version beyond what is listed on the project page?

    Yes, I saw that two lines down in the installer script

    The Spybot-S&D beta forum has the OpenSBI stuff 1.6 preview versions of FileAlyzer etc..
    Next to that, the discussion re: Firefox 3 there urges me to add support for some rough display of SQLite databases at least.
