For people who are writing and get 'its' and 'it's' mixed up, here is a simple solution.
Just remember that one is the shortened form of the present singular third person neuter of the verb 'to be' and the other is the neuter third person singular possessive pronoun.

Sorry Samx, in this country it's called "innuendo" so my spellings were not wrong if you understand the pun but then again i wouldn't expect you to. ;-) ha ha

ZZ, Eh, I didn't really understand any of that. I thought "its" is used when you're talking about something belonging to a thing, like 'I can't find its charger', and it's is short for "it is".
