Using Personal Custom Dictionary with Aspell and Pspell




Lately I was building a spell checker with PHP and I wanted to use my own dictionary with only specific words. Pspell in PHP sounded like the easiest way, however, by default, Pspell uses Aspell's dictionary.
In this post, I'm going to show you how to disable the default Aspell dictionary and use a custom made dictionary instead.

Copying Folders in Windows 10 Without Changing the Modified Dates



So you decided to backup your data to a second hard drive or an external hard disk, and then find out that the copied folders have the current time and date.

If you're like me and this bothers you, and you want the folder's original create date, the only way to copy them is through command prompt in Windows using ROBOCOPY command.

Assuming your data are currently on hard drive F: and you want to copy them to hard drive G:, then you can just open the command Prompt in windows and write the following command.

ROBOCOPY f: g: /MIR /COPY:DAT /DCOPY:T


As simple as that. Any questions, let me know!
