12:18 am

it's because lickety can't load the clues immediately at flip. He needs to get the new grid first... and then load the clues for us when he can take a break from work...

12:41 am

good question. some words can only be made starting in one or the other place.
12:41 am
stidmama

if a word could come from either, the protocol is to count it from the uppermost and left-most tile
12:41 am

the number behind the / = the number of words from that tile

I copy/paste my word list into my text editor. Then I search the regular expression "Look Up Word ([a-z]{2})[a-z]* (\d+) (\d+)" and replace with "\01 \02/\03"
1:18 am
gremlinn

That cuts out all the unnecessary stuff and extracts the first two letters ([a-z]{2}) and the letters/points after

I had to learn regular expressions for rapid text editing for the game writing I do.
1:19 am

oh, grem! YAY for the sparklers and for posting a list!
1:19 am

A text editor is like Word but without the fancy formatting.
1:20 am

Not all text editors do regular expressions though.

andree, if you want to see something about a friend who is NOT online, you can if he/she is in your My Friends. For example, gremlin and jellen posted a list in their profiles. If they are not online and you hae them in your MY Friends, you can get the lists. Also, Sprite keeps the list of icon themes so if yo have her in your My Friends and she's not online you can access her list that way.
2:49 am

You can also access someones profile from the rankings

hello, for any of you who have been following the saga of Max, the vet just left and although it is sarcoptic mange, it is very treatable. She gave him 3 shots, proclaimed Ruby mange-free, said I wouldn't catch it, and everything would be alright! Phew!
3:22 am

There's a relief!

All you need to remember, ruby, is to not imagine what might be wrong, but to get a diagnosis more quickly. Lecture over.
3:25 am
rubyfoo

lecture received, haz, but I can't stop smiling!
3:26 am
rubyfoo

but we all diagnosed it correctly and google and ata knew the name of the drug!
3:28 am
Haz1558

At least it didn't get as far as one case my husband dealt with years ago. A man brought a very sorry looking dog to the surgery, told husband that he had been trying to treat it himself but had failed miserably. He said his wife had threatened dire consequences if he didn't get it sorted out, so he was bringing the dog to get put down. His marriage was at stake, he said. Off he went, husband did the deed, half an hour later the phone rang. It was the man 'Sure you haven't put that dog down?' It turned out that the wife had meant him to get the dog treated, he had misunderstood and thought she wanted it 'sorted out once and for all' as being to get the dog put down.
3:29 am
rubyfoo

Bad story, haz, my husband was so nasty to me this AM about the dog, that I thought he'd want me put down! LOL
3:30 am
Haz1558

Hopefully the treatment will get Max sorted out quickly, he'll certainly be a lot more comfortable.
3:31 am
rubyfoo

yes, if he stops biting himself, all will improve quickly
3:31 am
rubyfoo

this vet is the nicest and Max was very calm
3:32 am
Haz1558

It'll be the itch that's driving him to it, once that's removed it should settle down.
3:33 am
rubyfoo

he seems to feel better when he's out in the snow; maybe the mites get sleepy in the cold
3:33 am
Haz1558

The cold will be soothing, almost anaesthetising to the skin.
3:33 am
herinfernallady

Gosh Haz that is terrible about the dog. Maybe the wife needed a husband
3:35 am
Haz1558

It's a long time ago since it happened, it's just a shame that the two of them didn't actually sort out what they meant by what they said.
3:37 am
herinfernallady

Didn't your husband have the euthanasia forms?
3:39 am
herinfernallady

Ruby play fetch with snowballs with the pup that is fun for entertainment
3:39 am
Haz1558

The man willingly signed anything he needed to - as far as he was concerned his wife wanted the dog out of the house because he had been trying to treat a skin condition for months without success. What his wife really wanted was for him to take it to the vet and get it treated.
3:42 am
herinfernallady

Oh I have the best dog story to tell

My (?) doctor just called. I don't know if she's mine or not. She called to check up on me. She said she was worried that I left the hospital too soon. She wanted me to stay and the surgeon said I could go home. So, what would you do? I went home. Now it seems that I have offended the doctors good judgement and I get the feeling she's saying see ya.

There's something happening with LIckety which I can't quite explain. He seems to do the clues, but the timing is off by one day, I'm not sure whether there's been a change in daylight saving hours in Australia or what. I know his daughter is ill, but he's still been doing the clues, just one day out.
9:15 am

right!
9:15 am

So, naturally, because his daughter isn't well, nobody wants to be bothering him about it. We soldier on.

a storm that came on faster and heavier than expected. when they finally dismissed the schools, everyone working had decided it was about time to get home also, and the roads were totally clogged, so the plows couldn't get through. many people abandoned their cars, and some children were stuck on buses until like 11:30 at night.

Match.com is better for females in that there is a greater percentage of males 70/30%, where it's the inverse with eHarmony.

Maybe eHarmony and Match.com should just throw their pools together.

Vi as a teacher I loved early release today since it also counted as a full day and no make up
3:07 pm
Trifioso

one of my students at work stayed home, so I only had one kid to work with, and thus got off early also. Mind, I only get paid when I work....

I was grooving on that funny farm game for a while, and the other two versions of it as well, but I got completely stuck, and haven't been able to move on, so I sort of gave up. The only way around it is to cheat by looking up other people's games, and what is fun about that?
