Yo, wordz nerdz of the puzzley flavor: Don't miss the great game Blocks With Letters On, posted by Sitegeist at MeFi (it gets much harder after the first 10 or 15 levels, in a good way). Also... [More:]

I've been meaning to post the crossword archive at The Chronicle of Higher Learning. These are like NYT crosswords at the Friday or Saturday level, I'd say. Very nice.
grr, taz, I was supposed to be getting some work done today! (this is good).

so what's the word on level 22 if it isn't 'carrots'?

Do you really want me to tell you?

(warning: don't look at the small word below if you are viewing on phone or pda... or maybe low resolution monitor)


copy/paste that teeeeeeeeny word above (which is the answer) to the comment box to see it reg size.

I got to level 10 and couldn't figure it out. Probably gave up too easily.

Taz, what a cool way of sharing but not spoiling a potential spoiler.

hee, thanks taz - I could just about read it when viewing Metachat on my phone, though... hope no-one else is caught out that way.

ooh, good point! I altered it a bit to include some space and a warning.

Speaking of puzzles and things altered, i just copied my response to "follow it" up (didn't post it) because
…it's displaying the same frequent errors i've been getting when trying to post a comment. Maybe you can see it, seanyboy.

i keep getting a single line in the middle of a post that doesn't show up completely or at all.
Anyone else?

eth, you might email seanyboy about that. I'm not sure I understand what you are describing, but he probably does.

Also, I'm on level 54. Is this really helping my tension headache?

Wow. That was so frustrating. I think I made it to level 5. I had no trouble with the words, but the whole spatial thing kicked my ass.

I'm stuck on 23. Can't figure out how to get the number four switch to stay switched, since the oh WAIT I GOT IT!

That was fun! Thanks.
