Does anyone else have this babble problem? Im having to enter words about 8 times before they come up. Its driving me nutty - takes so long and when im not thinking - can enter about 60 words only to find one are showing!
Maybe you are starting to enter the word before babble has returned focus to the the ... um ... word entry box.
Before you hit [add] check to see the beginning letter(s) of the word are there.
Tried that - its always worse now (first thing in morning in UK) so maybe its my slow dial up connection?
i've reached the limits of my technical knowledge ;)
Oh i too have a very slow dial up connection. For me, the only problem is what i described below
3 words to go .... and they are *really* bugging me!
You have to make sure that the cursor is blinking in the enter box before you enter a word. If it is not just take your mouse and click in the enter box and the cursor will go there automatically. It doesn't matter if your computer is finished thinking, it should still work. I do it all the time.
I'm missing three words too...
which ones are you missing? I'm missing an A, S, and T
I'm missing an E and 2 Ts
As - 2x4 (4 points each), 1x5 (10 points)
I'm missing 1 U.
Can anyone help?
Looking for it now.
Was playing with the wrong UTs.
Can anyone post up the breakdowns for Es and Ts??
the e's are all 4 letters
2 by er, 2 by et
what does the 8 letter word start with?
thanks, will keep looking
It builds off the same base as all the other Ps
I am missing 2 j's
I have 3 jo's (4,5,4)
and 2 ju's (4,4)
what am I missing?
You're missing 2 JAs
I only have 16 of the Ts, but here they are.
there's one more tax6 and 1 tax7
My Ts ...
TA4x4, 5x2, 6x3, 7x1
The missing one is driving me mad!!! I think its a 7 if the stats are right
Got the bloody thing! Its a TE7
108 / 4.96 / 1361
I only have 1A4, I cant find anymore
Play around with the A under the T ....
I cannot find the A5.
Play around with the A under the T ....
And think spiritual energies ...
Or think yoga. Can't believe I didn't see that sooner!
Thanks, jlm. Your clue was what did it :-)
I confess I am still going crazy on the A5! Yoga you say...
Me too... and feeling more stupid by the second! ;-)
OK, I'm not having much luck here finding the last Ns and Ss. Help?
NA4, NA6, NA7, Ni4x2, Ni5, Ni6, NO4, NO6, NU6, NU7
SA4, SA5x3, SN4, SN5, SO4, ST4x3, ST5x3, ST6, ST7
You are missing a Ni5 and a No6.
Ns - you're missing an Ni 5 and a Nu 4
Both of which you will kick yourself for when you get them :P
Ah, there it is! I was sure I had tried that one. Must really learn to type more carefully...
Ss - you're missing:
SA4, SO4, SO5, ST4, ST5, ST6
My bad, there is only one No6.
OK, definitely kicking myself over the NU4, but feeling OK about the odd Ni5. :-D
Was it the 2nd NI one you didn't have? I always love seeing UK and US spellings :P
Same here! It is what I am telling the folks here: I am not playing around. This is a learning experience!
Yep, it was the second one I was missing. Though I only found the first one by noodling. I had no idea it was a word or what it meant, so an alternate spelling never crossed my mind! :)
I'm still missing another S word after your clue, Atalante. It's 6 letters worth 18 points, and I'm off to hunt. I have 2 ST-6's right now.
Just need the A5 yoga word now. Aaaargh!
All the ST6s are worth 18. Two are plurals, one isn't. The one that isn't .... think Venus de Milo
That's the one I was missing. Didn't know it was an ST word I was missing until i found it though. ;)
Done with the same score as Atalante.
Ick - oh sorry - I've just looked back at the S lists - I should of course have said 2 ST6
No problem - more of a challenge that way, LOL! :)
I *liked* that puzzle :)
Are there really 2 Sa4's?
marigold, you have mail.
I dont think there is 2 AS4s, I have been trying to find them for ages
So have I. And there aren't that many possibilities with Sa4.
Yes, there really are two, and they only vary by one letter.
Treble99, I found the 2nd one. Must have mistyped it more than once, maybe you too? It's obvious, actually...
need an o and an r help!!
Steve - 4 of the 5 Os start with the same two letters, and all of the Rs start with the same two letters.
What have you got? I'm sure someone can tell you what you're missing.
o's are 4 5 6 4 all with the same first two letters
I only need one more St6, so I could tell you which R is missing.
r's are 4674
think animals or think talkers
45674 it should read. :)
or think of lady liberty
Done! An easy one or not? Liked it, anyway. CU!
ok got the R now for the O gotta be a 05 for 10 but .....
Which one do you have?
ok that last O is kicking my butt and im not too proud to yell for help!! HELP!
I hear you... So which O5 do you have?
got the one thats related to the others
Then you need a latin plural for small openings.
nevermind I must have typed that 5 times before and wasnt accepted or just my fumblefingerdness. Thanks for the hints
finished and yes it was fun!
I know what you mean, had a few of those myself. Good night for now.
Info on G's? I've got GU6 and GU7 so far.. do the other two start with GU?
I have a G5 that starts Gu too, but I don't know the fourth.
Boo East: if you join while I'm still here, can you please do your words in caps since I'm trying to keep track of what words are there? Thanks :)
(that's a hint to join me, too!!!)
Boo West, They're doing the line-ups now, do you really think I have time for this?? Oh, my nerves...
The G words are all VERY similar. They are 5,6,7,7.
Thanks. Some random noodling and I got it!
58 words 5.02 732
Not bad for 45 min of play & after being away for more than a month!
Baby probably won't allow me to get back on for a while . . . have fun all! ;-)
>> I didn't even get to read the chat log . . . and that's such a fun part of this place! ;-(
I need help with the J words. I have 3 jo's and 2 ju's. What am I missing?
Never mind, I found all of the J words.
I am missing one N word. I have 2 NA, 5 NI, 2NO, and 3NU.
I need one E word. I have 2 er's and
1 et. please
and one more Na
marigold, you have mail.
Boo, thanks, I will keep looking.
I am missing an O. I have 4 OA"S.
I am also missing a P word. I have six that start with PU. Does the last one start the same way?
yes (it's another Pu word)
The last O word is latin plural for small openings
Boo, thanks again. I will keep trying
All I'm missing now is the St7 and the Te7. Are these "normal" words?? compounds??
...got the St. Now on to find the T
Got it! 108 words!! :-)
good luck everyone!
Boo, I am missing the St and Te sevens. May I please have a clue for them.
Recurring every other day or, when considered inclusively, every third day
St: it's a plural of one of the St6 words.
perwinkle..... you have mail
I'm stuck on my last two A's, a 4/4 and a 5/10... and I don't do yoga.. any other clues that may help me?
marigold, you have mail
Krys10, the yoga word is the 5/10. it begins and ends with a.
I have an NA6 and an NA 7. is there another NA word?
I am missing an S word. I have 4 SA's,
2 SN, 3SO, and 12 ST.
I have 3 NUs, periwinkle.
Whoops, sorry, misread your message. Never mind. :)
Thanks to all for the clues! I got the last few words by feverishly noodling between clients...
I am missing 1N I have 2 NA, 5 Ni,
2N0 and 3 NU. What am I missing? please
Is there a hint for the last N that I am missing
finally got them all!
marigold, I have 3 na's
I think 'naut' should be an acceptable word,...as in oceanaut (aquanaut), astronaut, argonaut,...just 'cause, that's why.
And, can't forget... cosmonaut .
At last!! All my work 'n effort I put into doing crossword puzzles to learn new words has finally paid off in this puzzle. One of the ET words, meaning a small case to hold needles. Wee-who!!
How many letters is it?
hello, its 12:23 here, tell me how it goes i'm signing off, laterz!
Its 9:24 where I am, southwestern USA.
runningforhome - did you find the E word?
No, and I don't know what's wrong with me! There's only so many combinations...
Use the T to the right of the E, not the one above it. Hope that helps.
I could have sworn I entered that! Bah. Thank you.
Not a problem ;)
