Hi guys

I was just doing an assignment that needed a word count and was using
LO 3.6.1 and found that the word count is not working as it once was. I
quite like the new bottom status bar update it is a new and decent
update although it seems to be buggy at this stage. Take this block of
text which is from my assignment:

"Power does corrupt and throughout history there has been a number of
examples of totalitarian governments. I have decided to explore the
theme “Power Corrupts”

Throughout this whole year I have studied texts across a various amount
of genres and now have found that within some of the texts I have
studied there was a strong connection throughout them that connection
was the idea that power corrupts. The  texts which had the best
connections where: Schindlers List by Steven Spielburg , Changes by
Tupac , Answer by  Frederic Brown and examination day by Henry
Releasable. Each text carried the theme of power corrupts in a
different way but all had the same parallels and critiques of the
world. It also appears that some of the texts are subtlety warning us
about the potential problems with totalitarian regimes that have
occurred in the past or which could occur in the future.

The first text I looked at was Schindlers list. "Schindler's List" is
the based-on-truth story of Nazi Czech business man Oskar Schindler,
who uses Jewish labour to start a factory in occupied Poland. As World
War II progresses, and the fate of the Jews becomes more and more
clear, Schindler's motivations switch from profit to human sympathy and
he is able to save over 1100 Jews from death in the gas chambers. With
The realisation that Schindler has as to what the Nazis where really
doing also awoke in Schindler how corrupt the regime actually was.
Steven Spielberg the director uses several events in the film to
highlight the corruptness of the Nazi’s for example when Schindler
finds out that some of his workers are to be sent to an extermination
camp he bribes the officer with a valuable gold watch in order to
release the prisoners. A character which personifies corruption
throughout Amon Goeth who does all sorts of twisted and corrupt things
such shooting everybody who was associated with one person who stole a
chicken. The following extract of dialogue also shows us how evil he
really is"

now LO reports this as being 258 words. I count it myself and get
roughly 350. I then copy and paste this block of text into a online
word counting thing such as: [1]

and get 338 and then I take it over to MO which gives me 338! I don't
know what to trust!
