4:53 am
Flask1

It is actually......I love to go Spain.....and I sit and look at them all cooling off in the pool with such envy....
4:54 am
mattygroves

It seems that any time I look up a word, when it has a definition in dictionary.com, it's a tree or shrub or product derived from one. Odd!
Flask - I'd love to be able to ride horses, but I get frozen in terror when it starts moving. Ditto theme parks - I just cannot get on any high ride.

5:46 am
mattygroves

Beast - rather than asking for every word, you might find these two websites helpful: http://www.jumble.org/jumble.shtml and http://www.onelook.com/reverse-diction
ary.shtml
5:47 am
mattygroves

Eva it uses the same four first letters - and an anagram of the ra4 - wet stuff that comes from the sky

matty, sorry for asking too much, sometimes the people on here are happy to help, and sometimes they are not
5:49 am

No worries Beast - I just find those two website really helpful - one is a crossword solver, and the other a reverse dictionary.
5:49 am

btw I am on 86 words

i swear by reverse dictionary, really helpful

Thanks for the jumble site, Matty. ^^ It's very useful.
5:52 am
mattygroves

Tis, isn't it. I don't like using it too much, cuz it kinda feels like cheating, but when you're stuck, and monkey typing just doesn't seem to yield results, it's brilliant.
5:52 am

okay, am i not thinking clearing because i just woke up? lol How is it possible to have a wr4/8 word? the w is 5 points which leaves only 2 points for 3 more letters.
5:53 am
mattygroves

Form the query thus: ta*: definition - so the first howver many letters you have, then a star, then a colon, then the definition.
5:54 am
TheLegend

yay...finito
5:55 am
mattygroves

Congrats Leg!
5:55 am
Atalante

addy, 5 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 8 :)
5:55 am
mattygroves

Hi Ata!
5:55 am
MVA

woohoo the legend
5:56 am
addytewd

true, atalante, but don't forget that the 4 letter word gets a point just for being 4 letters. that only leaves 7 points for the value of each tile. since W is 5, that leaves only 2 points. am i wrong?
5:56 am
Atalante

hi matty :) hi everyone else :)
5:56 am
Flask1

well done Leg!
5:56 am
TheLegend

hi matty
5:56 am
Atalante

no, it doesn't, addy
5:57 am
TheLegend

hi mva
5:57 am
mattygroves

Sorry, addy - you're wrong - the only points you get are from the letters - you don't get a point for the word itself.
5:57 am
ExWren

addy. you aren't awake yet. w=5+3x1-8
5:57 am
mattygroves

So you get 5 points for the W and 1 point each for the other common letters - making 8.
5:58 am
addytewd

okay, now i'm totally confused. i thought each word got points based solely on length before adding the value of each tile. lol
5:58 am
mattygroves

The 1 for a four letter word is a multiplyer, not an adder (as it were)
5:58 am
addytewd

oh DUH!
5:58 am
mattygroves

You muliply x 1 for a four point, x 2 for a five and so on.
5:58 am
addytewd

i KNEW it was cuz i was still half asleep! thanks, guys LOL you're right, of course.
5:59 am
mattygroves

No worries, addy :D
5:59 am
addytewd

maybe i'll skip coffee, and go right back to bed lol
6:00 am

Will I need a fish - is the ta5/18 really obvious?

addy, click on the help button at the top of the page, and all will be revealed
6:02 am

well, umm, wren? i had already done that. LOL as you can see, i completely ignored the "multiplier statement". I appreciate everyone's help :)
6:02 am

like to5/18, matty, just change second letter

Goodbye lgorms! I will see you tomorrow in the chat!
1:53 pm
Uncagain

I figure if someone is hard up enough to ask for a clue, they dont want a mystery
1:55 pm
Minveryork

Sometimes I like a mystery.It depends on where I am at on my list and the time.If I know that I'm going to finish early, I do not mind gettinga mystery. But if it is crunch time, I almost want to be given the word.
1:56 pm
FMitch

I would disagree Uncag - I love the cryptic clues and the suggested words that make you think and then find the word, much more fun than dry dictionaries. But if the clock is running then basic works for me.

Is anybody's internet running slowly.I type in a word and it takes forever for a response.Now it said word could not be added and to try again.Do you see that in the log? This happens to me all of the time! I don't know if it is my DSL or the Babble website. Oh well!!
2:01 pm
brandyjack

FMitch, I can think of a couple of ways that Dr_G might fix it, but then you might wind up with the Babble screen stealing the focus from another window....

BJ - it's just that in the old layout typing thw word in the wrong box wans't a prob - is it really such a big deal in the new layout?
2:03 pm
brandyjack

Minver, mine is running slow too. I can type ahead several words and then sit there and watch the machine digest them (or spit them out, as the case may be). suggest that problem is with DR_G's provider or server being busy. Just because people aren't in the chat log, doesn't mmean they aren't playing....
2:03 pm

Min, I think it is a problem with DSL as it happens to me too, but doesnt seem to affect everyone else at same time

Faerie - in6 is one of the words (like be6 & en6) to do with parcelling things up.
2:57 pm
frogtaco

Just to poke at that road one more time, this particular spelling actually means like a bee. And I would stay away from the roast lamp, personally. :)

3:36 pm
brandyjack

the local ski slope was open for 3 weeks this year. Was too warm most of the time and we had rain eternally. I remember when I was a kid standing up on the snow bank looking down at the school bus. Of course I also remember picking my butt up off the road after falling off said snowbank and spraining my wrist.....

Cathyar

ya brandy...that IS the worst!!! i DETEST shovelling!
3:39 pm
brandyjack

Been a lot of whining in the news the last few years about the excessive amounts of snow were starting to get. But it's still nowhere near what I remember as a kid. I think about the time I hit college, the winters started to get real mild. People have sort of gotten used to the mild ness and now that it's getting back to normal, they're complaining.
3:39 pm
Cathyar

k...so i've opened bab anon on another page...where's the best place to visit from there...i've been to brandyjacks page and lickety's page before many times....where else is fun/informative re babble

3:41 pm
StephieC

3:42 pm
Minveryork

StephieC,it is pa plus the water that comes from the sky. The weather might be sunny or ra**ny.
3:42 pm
brandyjack

She mean't pa + the water that falls from the sky, but it's actually an anagram of the water drops.
3:42 pm
Cathyar
