12:51 am

stuck at 52 744 probably dream of these letters
1:16 am

the refresh time for me today is slow....ah well!!
1:28 am

to play or not to play... it's always more tempting when the puzzle is shiny-new and all homework is finished. my, the possibilities...

1:37 am

aint no persia any more
1:50 am

re: ads -- read about host files...
1:50 am

... not that you shouldn't support this wonderful site or anything (how about some text ads, Doc?)
1:53 am

text ads would be nice, and certainly interesting based on these word lists.
1:53 am
1:54 am

I think ads are genius for this site with the amount of impressions the average babbler gives out per puzzle.
2:05 am

cool that they're about volunteering; oh no it's late, practically morning! 91 4.99 1433
2:23 am

re: ads

I'm testing out Fastclick, so I have very little control over the content of the ads. It's not cool that a lot of people are experiencing slow load times because of the new ads, however. :(
4:07 am

I find it amusing that "apeshit" is not a valid word. tee hee
4:07 am

I've never been censored before!! I feel like a badass.
4:09 am

sorry, i thought that one would be censored too. didn't mean to offend anyone!
- a well meaning law student that refuses to study for finals because this puzzle is just more fun
4:39 am

Can anyone tell me what their 'z' words were from yesterday? It nearly killed me trying to figure one out.
4:41 am

You can go back and look at yesterday's puzzle, and click on people's names to get their word lists =) But mine was orzo, I believe.... not sure if there were any more z words though...
5:02 am

ah, thanks. Didn't realise you could do that
6:32 am

At least the Dark side of the Force will like this puzzle.
6:43 am

anything longer than 7 yet?
6:54 am

one 8 so far
7:05 am

two 8's
7:15 am

anyone break over 2,000 points yet?
7:49 am

and 4 8's now
7:51 am

no longer almost
7:58 am

I got two eights, too! I'm also proud to be averaging over five letters with over 50 words:

56 5.05 943
7:58 am

oy vey ... i've only found three 8s ...
7:59 am

Finally, my first 8 of the day
8:15 am

sorry, five 8's now
8:20 am

aaah, just when i found the fourth, you found a fifth? i bow to your greatness!
8:25 am

i've found 3 of them so far...
8:27 am

'resit' isn't a word?
8:31 am

i believe 'reseat' is the correct form
8:31 am

... and a sixth 8
8:32 am

haha. well i hope i don't have to 'reseat' any of my exams... although i'd rather 'reseat' them, which would presumably mean putting them on different seats, than 'resit' them...
8:38 am

I was just amused that porn was one of yesterday's words.
Orzo, I would never have thought of that.
8:43 am

Don't you actually 're-sit' exams, rather than 'resit'?
8:45 am

in that context, perhaps it's 're-sit'
8:54 am

I'm impressed with how many riffs you can get off one particularly vulgar word in the puzzle.
8:57 am

it's definitely 'resit' at my university ;)
9:11 am

oh, and i have seven 8's now. :)
9:26 am

Stop cheating, mvuijlst. The omnipotent surgeon is watching you...
9:28 am

dr_god, how exactly am I cheating? I resent that!
9:31 am

as I said yesterday: I write down all the words I can find, then I sort them alphabetically, look for any derivations (plural, past tenses, ...), then I look for anything that vaguely sounds English (or plausibly english), and then I enter them all at once on the site -- makes it easier to "brainstorm" when I don't have to wait for the page to reload.

(not mention that it cuts down on the frustration factor when perfectly good words like aesir or crees are refused :)
9:34 am

oh, unless you meant that I shouldn't use my OED to look for words :)
9:36 am

Interesting and entertaining explanation, mvuijlst, but I wasn't born yesterday. ;)
9:37 am

er, would you care to explain exactly how you think I'm cheating then? sheesh!
9:45 am
Big Daddy

how many people are trying make 'serene' work? lol
9:56 am

Dr.God, could you put a D in this puzzle? Discerning people would decree it much to your credit.
9:58 am

just checkin in.
10:22 am

The almost-words are mocking me!!!!
10:28 am

great ... i find the fifth and sixth 8-letter words and then you tell me there's a seventh? :-(
10:43 am

Woo-hoo! Broke 2000! (Though still with only 5 eights.)

112 5.19 2002
11:04 am

Six 8s, beh.
11:07 am

There's an additional 8 letter work in OED: treeship :)

(and words like styme, teer(s), nert, pah(s), tirr, perce, tygs, reesty, reesy, tres, rits, seir, serr, shir, stie, stire, reist, retes, terek, nerk, terrs, ...)
11:13 am

I had thought the rules would not permit the use of dictionaries :$
11:29 am

Isn't "itty" a word? I could swear I've gotten it before. I'll bet it's in the Scrabble Players' Dictionary!
11:36 am

I don't have a scrabble dictionary, but according to my dictionary: "itty, a. (colloq.) Used hypocoristically for ‘little’ (chiefly in reference to babies or small domestic nimals)."
11:54 am

there's no harm in looking up words in a dictionary, but using one to generate a list of words is nothing more than data entry
11:57 am

There's nothing wrong with it, but what's the point in looking words up in a dictionary? Just type it in. If Babble is going to accept it, you'll get credit. If not, you wont.
11:57 am

ah, fair enough then, thanks for clearing that up
12:05 pm

Three eights. 3. Thank god I don't really care or anything, otherwise I'd be feeling pretty inadequate right now...
12:22 pm

so, I'm just fooling around entering letters. I enter a 4-letter word that I never heard of, and, lo and behold, it is accepted. So, I click on the ? to get the definition, and it says there are no entries for that word. Weird! But I got my 8 points for the word.
12:31 pm
Big Daddy

lawyer-1: It's like you found the Babble version of welfare.
12:39 pm

I just got really excited because I thought I was about to find "Gymkata" in the babble, but it was not to be.
1:23 pm

I really want hitset to be a word. Can people start using that? Hopefully by the end of the day that will become aprt of the venacular.
1:27 pm

setee and crete aren't valid words?
1:28 pm

Hello - new here. When people are saying that they got "8"s, are they talking about letters or points? I'm starting to feel inadequate! Thanks for the info!
1:28 pm

settee has two Ts
1:29 pm

8 means letters, and yes, it does make one feel inadequate
1:30 pm

petri is so totally a word.
1:37 pm

145 words 5.03 2347
still looking fro the seventh '8'

I'll be back later
2:05 pm

Just one 8 letter word would make my day....;)
2:36 pm

for reference, itty* is not allowable in enable or sowpods
2:55 pm

I managed to get over 1,000 without any of yer stinkin' eight-letter words. Not bitter in the slightest. I just don't seem to have the brain to find the longer ones.
3:02 pm

I really think the secret is finding all the words that are similar to the words that you already have; the plurals, the predicate nominatives [I don't reall know what that means]
3:09 pm

my #1 tip would be to try absolutely everything that isn't patently impossible, like yesterday's tort, torte, torten--I'd never heard of the last two but they were accepted, so there you go.

And my #2 tip is not to do this in one sitting: come back to the site a couple of times during the day, you're guaranteed to find words you hadn't seen before.
3:12 pm

I"ll agree with coming back to it.
I'll be sitting there forever, Certain that there are no more words; then I'll take a break and see all these ones that I figure I MUST have already gotten.
3:40 pm

How do you people find eight letter words I can barely find six but I bet my bottom dollar that you people who find eight and nine letter words are the same people who enjoy and compleate quickly The New York Times crossword puzzle!
3:52 pm

239 words, 3984 points - Now THAT'S how you cheat!
4:00 pm

Ugh, are the 8-letter words normal, everyday words? I've only found one . . .
4:22 pm

do the NYT crossword every day :)
4:27 pm

i have no 8 letter words either lis :o(
4:34 pm

yeah, the 8's are pretty regular as far as words go.
4:55 pm

mmph; 1487, i feel like i'm at the bottom of an ocean! ah well...and no i don't do the nytimes crossword.
5:09 pm

done for the day, just checked out a site that solves for you. 242 words, some of which i didn't know existed. almost think i should print it out, run to the dictionary, lol
5:10 pm

yes there were 1519 before running that page. so obvious, some of
5:18 pm

Way to add to my depression!
5:31 pm

Yay! I found a 7 letter! I will not be as pathetic as yesterday!
5:36 pm

hey I found the ranking thingy. I'm ranked 208, which coincidently is my lucky #. Its going to be a great weekend!
5:55 pm

and 8 letter words! yay!
6:01 pm

oh mayn, cheating sucks. i'm just going to presume that anyone with a score considerably higher than mine at the end of this has been cheating, and claim a personal victory. or something.
6:13 pm

Boo and hissing in the general direction of cheaters... I thought I was doing quite well today with my 3 "8-letter" words...and then someone goes and tells me that there's many more. I feel like I've been looking at this thing for 20 hours, and damned if I can make anything else out of it... I think I may well admit defeat for tonight...
6:36 pm

Sh*t and pish in one puzzle. Hahaha!
6:51 pm

Booschwa people I just found my first seven letter(I know that's not that much but hey).
6:52 pm

LPF hi do i know you
6:53 pm

243 words... I guess it pays to roll your own.
6:53 pm

6:56 pm

I don't know if you would remember me.
6:58 pm

where would i know you
7:01 pm

Think Chicago Wedding
7:02 pm

you one of beth's sisters
7:12 pm

7:12 pm

On the nosie, but which one am I?
7:24 pm

Has anybody noticed that tern has showed up in almost all of these puzzles? Dr. God, do you have a bird problem we should know about?
7:26 pm

wow, i just logged back onto my comp. i hope you don't mean me by the cheating comment?
7:27 pm

anyway, i like to learn from my mistakes. :)
7:27 pm

Hey jbullock you figure me out yet?
7:28 pm

LPF: megan?
7:30 pm

megan, katie or gwen
7:32 pm

hey LPF, is this megan?
8:49 pm

Oh man, dr_god, I totally see what you mean about the cheating. I've found that site that Lil talks about which finds all the words for you. Ugh.

I got 194 and thought there wasn't anything else in there, turns out there' s another FIFTY words.

8:51 pm

Ah yes, turns out there's at least nine 8 letter words :(
9:18 pm

why is it so important to some of you to go to problem solvers and find out how many words there are in the puzzle? maybe Dr. God can make a board for people that want to cheat and have one for people who want to play honestly against each other. I'm really getting disgusted!
9:22 pm

the puzzle we're doing today is on line some place with all the answers? that's bizzare. how does that work?
9:31 pm

I swear I have use the word creepish before. Must be my own adjective.

9:40 pm

maybe Dr_God could post how many words are possible so that we can guage how well we are doing ....????
how about Dr_God????
9:42 pm

that's a good idea babs
9:42 pm

i want to be very clear, because some people view what i looked at as cheating; i stopped at 1519 before giving up for the day. it is like looking at the answers for a crossword puzzle the next day. if i were to cheat - and i didn't, i wouldn't have been open, and i would have continued playing. it was a matter of being aware of patterns that i hadn't seen before, so that i could see where i hadn't looked further. the interesting thing about noting the number of possibilities - personally i'm more interested in the words i overlooked - just showed how many - well over half - i overlooked.
if that??? counts as cheating, go figger, hunh.
9:45 pm

but, atlatl51, feel free to be disgusted. i would be too if someone cheated, but hopefully i'd correctly ascertain that they'd actually done so first.
9:46 pm

why can't you check your cheat page after the puzzle expires. I often look at yesterdays puzzle and checkout the high scorer's list to learn more words for future puzzles
9:49 pm

I agree with that too
9:51 pm

because when i stopped i was done for the day. i'm not sure how to make that any more clear.
9:52 pm

...all of which makes me happy I've got words *that site* didn't find :)
9:53 pm

also, this is my 3rd day; i wasn't aware that there was a list here that gave all possible answers - though it doesn't sound as if there is, simply one showing how many the highest scorer got. i was curious today. apparently that's a babble crime.
9:57 pm

if you are finished for the day, why are you still studying the puzzle. You mean to say that you go and look at the cheat page and come back and do't add to your list?
9:57 pm

Well, now I've gone looking for it: there's not only a site, there's a programme you can download. Bleh.
9:59 pm

i checked it out just to study the puzzle one more time. and yes, funnily enough i still have the same score of 1519 that i did hours ago, oh how is that POSSIBLE???
10:01 pm

checking other's list does not provide you with a solution but it does encourage me to look for more words next time by broadening my vocabulary
10:02 pm

i like words and i liked reading dictionaries in different languages and writing poetry. and i'm honest. i'm not going to defend myself further, and have done so more than enough already.
10:04 pm

did you see ginalitle's score? almost 4000. i bet no program was used there huh?
10:05 pm

I salute you for willpower to resit the temtation to continue working the puzzle but I find it hard to believe that people that go to cheat pages don't cheat.

10:05 pm

ah, babs - precisely why in an earlier post i mentioned going to the dictionary.
all right.
10:16 pm

why bother with a dictionary? just type in the letters and if it's not a word the game program tells you. If it is a word, you can click on the question mark and get the definition of the word. .
