An easy-to-use usage site

I was looking up e.g./i.e. (YET AGAIN... some things just won't take up residence in my brain-- thank goodness for Google) and came across this helpful site that lists common usage errors (like auger/augur... okay, some NOT so common ones) and explains when to use each. Here's the page where the reasoning is explained.

For Example: the second word starts with an E

That Is: the second word starts with an I.

Don't know if that works, but the weird "memory tricks" click for me so I thought I'd throw it out.

Cool site. I added it to the "Useful Sites" thingie on our sidebar.

And "e.g." sounds like "egg" which sounds like "eggsample". :)
