Sometimes I learn the most interesting thing when doing research. Sometimes it’s not even what I was looking for. Did you know Google has different sites on different servers to service different country? I occasionally hit a foreign google site when I do a search . . . sometimes when I’m just going to google.com, which explains why my friend can see Google letters masked in voting booths on voting day and I can’t.
That’s interesting in itself, but not my point. Did you know there are sites dedicated just to looking up words for scrabble people? I didn’t. I was working on a no clues crossword when I thought it would be nice if I could search for and find a site that allowed you to put in the known letters and get a list of words that match. I ran into the scrabble link and saved it. With my new word lookup site, that gives me two good puzzle reference sites I didn’t have before. Cool!
