    Nope, the Wordle text doesn't work at all, which is why I don't bother sharing results here. I'm now also playing Lewdle (dirty words only) and Nerdle (figure out the equation instead of the word) every day.
    Get that weak shit off my track

    Gordle is a clone that only uses hockey player names.

    Heh, I almost managed to screw up today's when I had all but the first letter green and then my brain just decided to type in a different last letter than I meant to.

    February 1 and 2 really did fall out from my new first word...



    Now I just demonstrate some more how you can use facilities of the Forum to display your results.
    Spoiler:

    Result was reasonable for February 3. Picked the wrong choice for 3.

    Then I had a WHEW on February 4. Used an impossible word 2. Perhaps should have used another before guess 5...



    So for February 5 I used an impossible 4 to narrow things down.


    By-the-way, the New York Times has "bought wordle" for "a low 7 digit sum". (So that's 1 million and a bit US dollars?) What exactly have they bought? You'd think they would do something to protect against lawsuits if they want to start such a game, but it is surprising they paid so much for some sort of complete ownership of something relatively trivial.

    And also, Google searches suggest there used to be a now-defunct wordle.net which was something somewhat different.

    If you use/install my quicky perl scripts (attached), you can do something like...

    woolde-score usurp puppy spark purse usurp | woolde-chart
    WHERE: in this case, the first usurp is the answer, and the following words are guesses.
    Spoiler:
    woolde-score usurp arose until usury usurp | woolde-chart
    to obtain the BB code.

    Heh, nice. Today's was tough for me...I got the first two and last letter and then just couldn't figure it out until the last guess and that one took me forever.

    :r /tmp/today

    Sigh. I should have done better.
    Either of guess 4 or 5 would have worked as well (=> better) for guess 3 as my impossible one did.


    It occurs to me that the mechanics of the powerlanguage.co.uk site keyboard entry and response display system are far more complicated than the basic game algorithm, and perhaps that is primarily what the New York TImes wanted to acquire.

    And now I am thinking about passing prunes.

    With the Wordle archive, you can play the game the way it was when the Worlde began.
