    Today's was the first time that I found out a letter can repeat in the result. Which was both kinda bullshit because it led to some wasted guesses but it also mean that even with having four of five letters right by the fourth guess, I still didn't get it.

    Yes, bright students get caught out occasionally when they fail to pay attention in class...

    Using
    http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/...aketime.1.html
    I managed to go forward a few days in time (later verified).
    I saw a Firefox setting the other day which might allow me to go back in time, but can't be bothered to try.

    In any case, the puzzle you get is a function of your browser's local time.

    I play the archive occasionally

    Oof, two guesses and I'm out of Norwegian words I can think of that'd fit.

    Yeah, it's not the most common word.

    I donít know how much I'll spoil you here, but




    two of the letters appear twice, meaning there's only three different letters in the word, which meant I quickly ran out of options...

    The URL redirected and the distinctive font appeared.
    Yet the last three days still went well.

    Interesting! Something I will suck horribly at

    Speaking of, here's another spin off that's super fascinating: https://semantle.novalis.org/
    It's based on how close the word is based on usage in a sentence. Fucking wild. And will take way more than 6 guesses.

    Also, weird thing happened.

    My phone kept the "powerlanguage.uk" URL for the longest time, after the website redirected to NYTimes for most everyone else.

    Last night I did the solution... and my wife did it immediately afterwards (her Wordle had redirected to NYT already). When she announced the answer, I did a double take. It was different than mine! Looks like they finally diverged?

    Spoiler:
    Power language was "agora". She got "aroma" for NYT, which is eerily similar. It seems like NYT thought that was a bullshit word like I did at the time

    They have - NY Times have apparently removed some of the more obscure words and some that were potentially insulting/insensitive. They said that pretty soon the powerlanguage one will redirect to the NY Times website so we'll all be on the same page again.
