For the last week I've been whingeing I could not get through to Word Puzzles.
Every time I connected up and typed in the first letter I got bounced, and was told I'd played the game before.
Today with Earthlink being down, I used dialup instead of DSL.
When I connected in to A-F trivia I found myself in WP heaven. Every time I typed in a guess it filled in that letter (or not) then when i typed the next letter it cancelled the first letter, filled in the second -- but only charged me one guess in total.
Why I did not solve it all in one go I do not know, but my numbers sure look good!
Since I'm not sure I'll ever be able to play WP again on this computer I dont feel that guilty ... but placing points are surely inappropriate for me!

Apologies to everyone who plays WP.
Something is seriously wrong with my computer or Sploofus (I did file a ticket with Justin last week when i could not access the WP).
Today the new airport puzzle produced the same flawed system as described above. I actually played the game in 28 moves. But for some reason or other most of my guesses did not trigger the counter... the 4700 was the correct score.
I know this will aggravate the other WP players, but since I'm only gold for a month, love the WP, and missed the first week of playing -- since when I was on Earthlink DSL I could not play at all -- I'm going to stay on dialup till Earthlink restores sevice to me.
So there may (or may not) be other odd-looking scores from me. Earthlink has been on and off all week but it took till yesterday before I got desperate enough to go back to dial up.

No worries here. Do what you must until it's fixed.

Garrybl (Barry) is a highly respected bridge player where cheating is like murder in real life. He is asked to sit on boards that judge other bridge players because of his knowledge and high ethics. I think he is more than qualified to state the issue and I am sure he is not doing anything intentionaly wrong. I bet Justin figures out the problem and corrects it in due time.

No worries here, I just play the darn thing and do the best I can. Been everywhere from first to 240th,...don't matter in the scheme of things. Never really expect a top ten,..if one falls in my lap,..great.

At least he's up front and honest about it,...class act.

Letter abbreviations F-L or somesuch.
9th December
real score on today's letter puzzle was 4800 in 31 moves (not so bad, but not quite as good as 5000 in 8!!)
