Hey Jon, can you move the dictionary. (in General)

To the new server please.
It seems to be. What words worked on the old server and not the new?

I noticed "exbow" coming up wrong, but maybe it always did?

MH also is not working, neither are most shorts...

All of the proper acronyms that used to work, NS. The way that SNK3R I believe told us to post them was "EB" instead of say "EBs"/"ebs".

If we need to rebuild it, is that not what our full admins are for?
Jon gave them dictionary privileges if I remember correctly.

The dictionary got moved but something else is wrong, possibly with the new version of the spell checker (ispell) since the new server is running software from 2008 not 2006.

... so it turns out the problem was that on the old server the HOME environment variable was set for scripts executed within the web server, but on the new one it was not. Without HOME set, ispell ignores any custom dictionary you give it, with no warning. (Clever!)
I'm manually setting HOME now and it is happy again.
