It was a royal pain to write,

It was a royal pain to write, which is why it isn't very elaborate, but I just had to do it. :) I'm glad it's appreciated.

Did I get it right?

This is what I came up with:

(or, An Experiment in Dictation)

“Missingword’sreally very easy,”the girl at the computer said.“To decode my message, simply dictate the text to someone who can write—and who preferably has high tolerance for bother.”

*WHEW!*

Having a high tolerance for bother myself, I decided to roll with the punches and fill in the missing word and spaces:

“It’s really very easy,” the girl at the computer said. “To decode my message, simply dictate the text to someone who can write—and who preferably has a high tolerance for bother.”

(Incidently, you left the caps lock on)

I figured you'd like this

I figured you'd like this one.

So I've corrected my mistakes... I think. yes, I did leave the caps lock on. that's not a mistake. and now i'm not using any in a soul of rebellion.
