Got an enigma wrong (1122: Chapter and verse) 🙁 Lost my working too, so I can’t trace my mistake. Ah well. This week’s was a bit tedious (did it with the aid of a calculator). On the plus side, I’ve jigged around these pages a bit though, and registered an internet domain (eutony.net) 🙂
New Word: immure \ih-MYOOR\. To enclose within walls, prison, to entomb.
Well, Fridays Enigma again was solved using a computer program (but a very nice one – I enjoyed writing it!). Hope do one on paper soon. I’ve also rehashed my reviews section, and put up some book reviews – check it out!
Well, another year older and wiser. Good Grand Prix, good Enigma this week (wrote a computer program; took me hours to debug it!!). New word; diaphanous \dye-AF-uh-nuhss\: characterized by extreme delicacy of form : ethereal, insubstantial, vague. MIR’s splashdown has also been delayed until Friday, and apparantly there’s going to be blizzards this evening! I also just found out that Northern Exposure is on every night from 23.50 to 00.50 on ITV2. 🙂
Don’t forget – Malaysian Grand Prix this weekend (06.45 – 09.05 Sunday morning on ITV) Also just found a most cool site – Star Wars in asciimation
Mir’s return to Earth has been delayed until March 20th. So that’ll be 3 days after my birthday then (hint hint <g>)
A letter/digit Enigma this week – nice one too (although doing it on the train caused me to miss my stop!!!). Probably 45-50 mins.
New word – thrasonical: Bragging or boastful. Also added a new link to Ananova – the virtual newscaster.
Another new word – eupeptic: cheerful, optimistic.
Interesting enigma – did it by brute force in probably 45-50 minutes, but think there’s probably a trick I missed!
