12:33 am

the "correct" method is to allphabetize them as if they were spelled out. but computers can't do that so they get arranged according to the "computer alphabet"
12:33 am

here, those are long deprecated, so likely why sql chokes on them.

the urates and feces come out together, but are actually separate things. so if you look at the droppings on your car, the white stuff is the urates, the black/brown/green is the feces.

mayhap. i'm making nearly as many random connections on facebook as i've made on LJ. Little harder to get to know people well on facebook, though time will likely make me reconsider that
2:37 am

What three-syllable word was combined with the word icicle to coin the word popsicle?
2:39 am
dcseain

yw, fran. it took me by surprise!
2:39 am

lollipop, I think
2:40 am

and hi BabbleRabble :)
2:40 am
FranMag

hi babrab!
2:40 am

Answer: lollypop




The name popsicle was coined as a trademark in 1923 by Frank Epperson of Oakland, California. He coined it by contracting the phrase lollypop icicle.

sprite

argh... ok *feels adequately chastised*
2:42 am
sprite

thermometer?
2:42 am
FranMag

thermometer?
2:42 am
BabbleRabble

Answer: pyrometer




Cryometers measure very low temperatures; whereas pyrometers measure very high temperatures. The former derives from the Greek kryos, frost; the latter from the Greek pur, fire.

8:57 am
NonoNanette

nonnie is your icon representing current conditions?
8:57 am
Scrabbler

Actually for kids there are arm braces that prevent the elbows from bending. Parents get upset when hospitalized kids have them on.
8:57 am

No, nono. No here :o( Our weather has turned a bit colder but no precip in sight.
8:58 am

9:04 am
Atalante

same here with bronchitis. I had very bad ezcema till I was about 4, and I mean about 70-80% body coverage, but luckily I dont really remember that. Then bronchitis till I was about 14. I was off school from about October - February nearly every year with stupid bronchitis attacks. Then asthma, and thats been the best of the three so far!
9:05 am
Atalante

though I still end up in hospital nearly every year for a few days!
9:05 am
NonnieLight

Oh, ata and montreal...I feel for you as my youngest suffers with similar conditions.
9:06 am
montreal13

i think u had it worst then me Ata ((hugs)) - it took 4 and a half years of injections to de-sensitize me from all those allergies - have been asthma-free since the age of 18...

9:08 am
NonnieLight

9:08 am

9:12 am
Atalante

not so much - well, I was never really scared of them. They *hurt*. And no-one believed me for years that they hurt more than anyone else's injections do LOL, then we found out I'm also allergic to some types of metal. Inlcuding the type they make hypo syringes out of. So any injection I have hurts for about a month or two afterwards. Great.
9:13 am
montreal13

(((Ata)))
9:13 am
Atalante

lol doesnt bother me now cos I'm used to it. But as a kid I was very unimpressed
9:14 am

For goodness sake! I'm so sorry for you...that had to have been awful.
9:15 am
Atalante

it certainly wasn't fun. but it could have been worse
9:16 am

hello weegee and welcome back!
9:21 am
weegee

hey, ata. saw your notes about allergy shots. I get 2 a week now, have for about 2 years, molds in one arm, the rest in the other. Hey, nonnie!
9:22 am

Nonnie: le5: take a four-letter word for Christmas, reverse it, then finish it with a vowel
9:22 am

You're welcome. And good morning, all!
9:24 am
weegee

NO, ata! Lost 6+ weeks of work and 250+ hours of accrued sick leave a couple of years ago. Haven't had so much as a sniffle since starting shots, also twice daily generic benadryl - doesn't make me sleepy like some; rather, hyper!
9:24 am
weegee

Hi gwen!
9:24 am
Atalante

9:24 am

9:37 am
Anniebrook

It will also tell you how many letters in the word and the point value of the word
9:38 am
Atalante

or you can be masochistic and do it listless LOL

Yes, Atalante has a point there if you are inclined
9:39 am

Is Pokey another Tangleword exile?
11:50 am
sassyB

anyone have clues for the re5/10 and 6/18?
11:51 am
sassyB

before i pull my hair out!!
11:51 am
Haz1558

re5/10 - add another consonant to the preceding re4/4, then plural it.
11:51 am
Atalante

not sure where she appeared from, but she has a 5 month cocker and a 12 year old cocker. very sensible
11:51 am
Haz1558

(The last two letters could be short for a street or a saint, if that's any help, sassy)
11:52 am
Haz1558

A 5 month cocker would be lovely. I saw a baby springer the other day. Thought about kidnapping it from the owner, but decided against it.
11:53 am
sassyB

thx so much, haz. i think i seriously have a hatred for re words after yesterday's grid
11:53 am
Haz1558

They were a bit disporportionate yesterday, I'll give you that.
11:54 am
Atalante

I think I might have done. liver or black?
11:54 am
Haz1558

Liver. It had stopped in the street, obviously exhausted, and the owner swept it up in his arms. So cute!
11:55 am
Atalante

darling!
11:55 am
Haz1558

I might have staged an intervention if the owner had been nasty, but he seemed to be caring!
11:56 am
Atalante

good. we like caring spaniel owners
11:57 am

Haz1558

Is it poisoned chocolate?
12:05 pm
Haz1558

ae5 - has the same ending as the March date that Caesar was to beware.
12:05 pm
Haz1558

Or, ae plus the start of Othello's wife's name.
12:05 pm
Haz1558

Or ae plus what comes before Miserables on stage.
12:06 pm
Haz1558

Scrub the last one.
12:06 pm

Finished- going to start my day

a di 6 is a comma type of musical interval, usually meaning the difference between three justly tuned major thirds (tuned in the frequency ratio 5:4) and an octave (in the ratio 2:1), equal to 128:125 or about 41.06 cents. In 12-tone equal temperament, on a piano for example, three major thirds in a row equal an octave, but three justly-tuned major thirds fall quite a bit flat of an octave, and the diesis describes the amount by which they are flat.
