I am also very impressed with frag's 2

Edit: yeah, quickreply does not work
Eta2: not user if it's the indent or the preview during edit that helped

Fragment, that was an amazing guess in 2! :yup:

I have been using raise as my word to start (but not using the algorithm posted above) and it's been a pretty good starting word so far.

I was unable to get this to format correctly using any method in the quick reply box, but when I opened the full new post page it worked with indent. :confused:

I don't even need the indent if I use the full new post page. Quick reply and the edit function seem to bork it.

If you want to practise without waiting for a new word each day, this clone is excellent.

Unicode handling in vBulletin is lacking? :gasp: Trying a preview first:

I honestly didn't think this was a word, or else I'd have it one guess sooner.

Twitter doesn't handle this well at all, either. When I copied from my tweet and pasted it back on my terminal, I got "Yellow Square" and "Green Square".

This will not validate against the signature. :(

This probably doesn't help most people, I could (easily) build Mac OSX and Ubuntu binaries. If you're feeling bold about running a binary off a github build:

Merge pull request #4 from davebob3/darobs/test-make-binaries · davebob3/simple-text-signer@1f24f99 · GitHub

The Windows build doesn't like the fact that I used openssl. If I get around to it, I can switch to some other library so I can make a windows binary.

Harder today. I kept the two correct letters from my second guess in place for my third and fourth guesses - a mistake - I could have probably saved a guess by not doing that.

Wordle does use repeated letters sometimes. If you guess more repeated letters than are in the solution word, the extra duplicated letters that aren't in the answer will be grey.

One thing I did was turn on "hardmode" in the settings - if you have a green letter, you have to place it, and if have a yellow letter, you have to use it. I actually find this easier, not harder, because it forces me to be more selective in what I choose. Today was an exception.
