hi, quick question--how do you find out how many points are possible. Thnx!
12:28 am
cybernan

te 7/40, te 7/36
12:28 am
wth

and what do things like "sh 7 x's 2" mean?
12:28 am
LeslieAnn

wth, thought we lost you! to find out info on the puzzle, click on the babblers anonymous link to the right, then click general, then click stats. however, it's not usually up until a few hours after the new puzzle is posted
12:28 am
cybernan

have 14 of the 20 7's now.
12:29 am
NatLT

there are two very helpful links over at the side for new babbler's, babbler's anonymous, and angerlsong's page, or if you ask the people on that are pro have the info
12:29 am
LeslieAnn

if you are a pro ($10 fee) you get to know how many words are in the puzzle. today it's 212.
12:29 am
stidmama

hi again wth -- "pro" players have a list that comes up. There are also lists available on some of the friends of Babble websites to the right of your screen. Lickety's Babble Clues has a good list (not always complete, but usually); Angelsongs pages have resources including a link to the Babbler's Anonymous list
12:29 am
NatLT

like today ther are 212 words total
12:30 am
wth

thanks, will check those out. do i need to have a paid membership to see that info? (i know for the log you don't get to see what you have or have left, etc, unless you join)
12:30 am
LeslieAnn

sh 7/36 means a word that starts with sh, is 7 letters and 36 points.
12:30 am
knutmeg

Babblers list not up yet? 212 words though >.< Hopefully I'll have better luck today.
12:30 am
stidmama

sh 7/21 x 3 words beginning with "sh", worth 21 points total, three of them
12:30 am
LeslieAnn

links are free. and if you ask nicely, the pros will tell you how many words
12:31 am
NatLT

the sh, means I found a word that starts with sh, it was seven letters and I found 2 of them, [x's 2 (times two)]
12:31 am
wth

wow, lots of words. this is my third puzzle, but i never get above 1,100 (which is about where i am now)
12:31 am
LeslieAnn

actually, you don't even have to ask nicely. it's a helpful group :)
12:31 am
stidmama

wth -- you're doing well!
12:31 am

excellent, thanks nat and all for help!
12:31 am

I am thinking I need to get to bed, 60 seems like a nice round number to end off the night
12:55 am
chic

well, it's different when you live in the desert and the wild, big stuff finds its way in. We've had scorpions inside too. I always see them first luckily. They are the small grayish white ones that can really make you ill.
12:56 am

The sc 9, I must be really dim but i can't see what you can add to it??
5:29 am
Eva

the vet put him on an all natural,all raw food diet which was supposed to make him svelte-but he can gain weight looking at his food bowl. Need to get him on the treadmill. If we let him go outside he'd get lots of exercise, but would also get eaten, so he'll just have to retain his rotundity. he's still the most beautiful cat in the world (yes I know some of you think you live with the most beautiful cats in the world, but you're wrong)
5:29 am
harvey

yes I am dim should have said can't see what you add to the sc 7
5:29 am
broll

harv - there are 2 sc 7s
5:30 am
Eva

the sc9 has another consonant at the beginning and is a Yiddish term for spreading something (like on a bagle)
5:31 am
jo_jo

eva, whats the main clur for sc9? been stuck on it for ages
5:32 am
Eva

jo jo-starts with 3 consonants. Has a double vowel in the middle. Yo can do this with suntan lotion on someone's back, or cream cheese on a bagel.
5:33 am
Eva

The 9 is the past tense of the 7, which is the root verb.
5:33 am
broll

whoops - starts with 4 consonants!
5:33 am

sc9/40 is the past tense of one of the sc7's

Amazing what can be done with just four vowels!
5:37 am
Eva

I do Atalante, but havea been totally unable to make it work into an icon. Everyone has given me tips on how to do it, but with my mac and iphoto it just hasn't worked. I'll keep trying. He is quite large (aside from the beach ball belly), clearly has Maine Coon cat in his lineage, so a very square body, is black and white with long fur, tufted ears and paws, and eyes the size of the largest marbles , a pure green, surrounded by black mascara. His face looks like something from a classical Chinese opera.
5:37 am

omg! i am so bad at this today. cant understand the simplest of clues lol
5:38 am

Eva, if you email me a photo, I can iconise him and put him on my webspace and give you the link to the pic - shoudl be foolproof!

6:51 am
Haz1558

Sorry - amarnath
6:51 am
amandacath

amarnath - I think someone said earlier it's a yiddish word. To spread, like creamcheese on a bagel
6:51 am
amarnath

until now i have made 98 words scoring1100 ,can i get some more help
6:52 am
amandacath

that's not me haz! the names are confusing though, now that you mention it
6:52 am
Haz1558

There's an sc7/40 that means a person who plots things. The other is an anagram of this.
6:54 am
capone

i looked up the spread clue and the word it gave isn't possible with only 1 m
6:55 am
capone

funny how a lot of words that have counted before aren't taking today, or is there something wrong?
6:55 am
Haz1558

The sc7/40 - begins with the consonants for a place of learning (three letters) then end with an anagram of me4/5 meaning a small amount
6:56 am
spellit

I haven't found that happening Capone - what words?
6:56 am
Uneaixoise

the sc7 and 9 are yiddish, if that helps at all!
6:57 am
capone

i think pete took a few days ago, could be wrong
6:58 am
capone

and i just gave a freebie away for a 5 letter, sorry
6:58 am
amandacath

the dic gives the root of the sc9 as a noun: "(Yiddish) a batch of things that go together; "he bought the whole ..."

Which admittedly has nothing to do with spreading, but the sc9 is a verb and certainly sounds like that's what it should mean!
7:04 am
amandacath

if you can preempt, why can't you empt?
7:05 am

Pete has never worked - I know because it's my name. The full version is OK though

although I don't think I would necessarily want to come back as a cat-even though this one has had a blessed life. The dolphin has always been a clear choice for me-despite what we have done to their environment. I think they are at least as intelligent as we are-they had the brains to come up on land, look around and head back to the water before we showed up. And I love being in the water.

I can understand with a purebred, Jen. Ours are mutts (cute, but mutts). Mine is 12 1/2 & I figure it's time to let the old guy live a little. We have a nice big back yard & as long as they don't try to cross 123, they're pretty safe.

He man rolled his eyes "Well then what is it looking at!?" The wife looked down at his new boots. "Frank you should have bought a hat so it would look at that instead"

Hi biggles... some of us are just too stubborn to let a puzzle go without solving it... others are actually that smart!

My problem with reading series in SF/Fantasy is that the authors don't write fast enough. I find a series read all available and then by teh time the next one comes out I have to go and reread the whole series, of course it does tend to help find the real gems. I haven't really found any new authors recently though
12:41 pm

preaching to the chorus here, Tigereye.
My other problem is when an author write his/herself into a corner that they don't know how to get out of. My best example currently is the Anita Blake books by Laurrell K. Hamilton -- her characters are so powerful, yet so woefully stupid at times, that I can no longer willfully suspend my disbelief thus ruining my enjoyment :(
12:43 pm

i have trouble with sci fi because i live vicariously through the main character - which is of course why i'm not fond of a male main character.

Robert Jordan definitely has WAY too many charcters in his writing. It's like he wants to make sure he gives you all the info about the world as it happens so he won't fall into the "let's write another trilogy to explain the backstory of This obscure character" that other worlds have, like the various Forgotten REalms books
12:48 pm

Evanonut one of the reasons I particularly enjoyed Alison Croggon, Kristen Britain and several of the Anne McCaffrey (Pern series) books was that the main characters were all female, makes it easier to understand them sometimes
12:49 pm
cybernan

Thanks, Musicmom -- my memory is good -- just short!
12:50 pm
Atalante

Tigernut - you'd probably like Katherine Kurtz's Deryni books then - there's a lot from the female point of view there
12:50 pm

And the new teen SF book, Eargon and Eldest were awesome!
12:50 pm

However, I do like the magic system of JOrdan -- though his characters are another example of people too dumb to put the facts together even with a manual printed in 20 point type :D

I love the idea of the Aes Sedai, and Rand was wonderful to start with. It just got so *messy* though, and so over-angsty. Rand was just - well - not something nice to read about

vic - I have an unpublished book as well. Co wrote it with a friend. I think it is juvenile fiction - she thinks it is an adult book. We haven't had success finding a publisher:-)
12:53 pm

Atlante - I agree, plus they were so spread apart-
Rand, Perrin and MAtt never have contact
12:53 pm

I've finished two and got bogged down in a third that would probably be classified as juvenile fantasy. Plus a mystery. I haven't written much since kids and, as I say, I doubt any publisher would be interested!

Atalante -- the part that drives me craxzy is that the characters can't figure out that the separation of magic along the gender lines is the direct cause of some of the spectacular results they sometimes have. :o

One more thing - I am so excited that both my girls love books and reading. I was afraid that I would give birth to a non-reader. I would have trouble understanding that. That is unless there was a physical reason they had trouble reading. Greg and I both read all the time.

1:10 pm

I think adult fantasy writers tend to overcomplicate things sometimes, they try to have to many characters or just too much thought processes going on. WIth teen fantasy you lose a lot of that and often get relaly well devoloped characters coming through, it helps that there's usually a happy ending of some sort too

PlayWoman - I cheat. I do all i can on my own. Then go to Babblers Anon to see what I can fill in. If I'm still stumped, I use a2zwordfinder. And as a last resort, beg for help from fellow babblers.

playwoman, I'll be honest, I use a 2-letter list (BJ's), just to help me place everything in order (and some would call this cheating). I try to use just the clues from fellow babblers, but sometimes it's just huge (hello?!?!!? 350 words?!?!!?) and I don't want to kill my ranking, so I'll use a2z...
8:41 pm
Jen

sweet dreams peri!! :) Have a good evening!
8:41 pm
Playwoman

Thanks , Jen. I guess I enjoy the game more if I do it without help, but the,again, I guess I'm notlearning any new words, am I?

playwoman use Babblers anoynmous, stats for list
8:43 pm
Charm

Playwoman, you'll find as you play that there are many uncommon words that seem to crop up often. And there are the 'tricks' - plurals and past tense and latin endings which you learn to recognize.
8:43 pm
Jen

Eh, it's all up to you how you play, playwoman, honestly. I have been playinf crosswords for about 20 years and still am finding new words here! I don't feel like I am cheating myself because I am still learning.

Jen

I knew Rota was a town in Spain (shit, I LIVED on the yacht club there), but I never knew it could be a babble word! :)
8:46 pm
Playwoman

Jen, et al.-I agree with you about learning. I've only been at this a week, so I'm sitll enjoying trying it on my own.

Just sitting here - not in the mood to read tonite. Thinking of getting up for a snack, though....
9:29 pm
GreyWoulf

I try, Charm -- the biggest challenge is to make her understand that even though it seems like I am spending more time with him because he is little and helpless, she is still important and has the priority on my attention much of the time :)
9:30 pm
