Crap, I knew I should've ran it through a spell check, or at least thorougly proof-read it.... If their technical support can't let me change it, I'll make another one, and double and triple-check the spelling and grammar.
*edit*
After reading through some of the text they have on their page for creating the petitions, it appears that it's not really feasible to change spelling. So I guess I'm going to have to create a new petition... Sorry everyone!

It allows you to play all the online games like the ones on zone.com or games.yahoo.com. It is particularly useful if you have children. My 4 yr old boy loves all those games and that has become the only reason to boot up my xp box which is abit of a waste really. I would rather scrap it and load mandrake 9.2 - slurp, of which I have just ordered their dvd version yummie yummie.

Some of those games are really cool tho and are nice 3d games - the graphics are not too shabby either.
