Just a minor grammatical error I thought you'd like to have fixed. All the cheat programs I've downloaded so far have had a text at the bottom below the heading "CUSTOMIZABLE". The second last word in the paragraph below says "it's", but it should in fact be "its". The apostrophe is used to combine the words "it" and "is", and if you read it that way, the sentence makes no sense.

I know it's minor (<-- notice the use of "it's" there ) but still figured you'd like to have it fixed.

Thanks for a great service!

The apostrophe also symbolizes the possessive form: "it's functions", showing the the functions belong to the trainer.

The grammar is 100% correct.

No it doesn't.

Its is possessive. It's means it is.

It's a very common grammatical error, and many people fail to notice it.

"Mrs Jones' stuff"
"My brother's friend's stuff"
"Bob's record"
"The company's property"
"The house's windows"
"it's functions"

I wish they still taught grammar in schools.

The mainstreamed version of grammar the state college rejects who teach in public schools pummel into your skull is not proper grammar. It's dumbed down so that the egalitarian classroom can all understand it, so there can be one grammar class instead of having one grammar class for normal people and one grammar class for people who can't learn.

And neither is the same mainstreamed version simply rehashed by a public school drone on a webpage.

Its or It's?

Its is the possessive pronoun; it modifies a noun.

It's is a contraction of it is or it has.

Incorrect: The mother cat carried it's kitten in it's mouth.
(Possessive pronoun, no apostrophe)

Correct: The mother cat carried its kitten in its mouth.

Correct: I think it's going to rain today.
(Contraction of it is)

Correct: It's been a very long time.
(Contraction of it has)

I've never ever heard of "it's" being the same as "its" when used as a possessive pronoun. I might be wrong, English is not my native language. But I still believe using "it's" for anything else but the contraction of "it is" is incorrect.

*edit* Dhampy, please send me a link which explains your point. I'd love to get this straight, as I'm a sucker for grammar

Thanks.

I would prefer CH to use REAL English, not the travesty you are indoctrinated to believe is proper.
