This list of words is pretty big (1.7M); it is all lower-case, includes various word forms and excludes proper names.  I wish I could remember where it came from (I think it was called WORDS, if that helps you identify it??)


Gloves off

OK – I’ve removed the password-protection from the site so it is now open to the ravages of the internet savages.  Oh yes, let the slings and arrows begin.

in plain sight

in-plain-sight is my very first cryptic crossword. Maybe someday I’ll figure out how to post it in HTML, but for now you’ll need to download the PDF and print out: don’t most people still like to solve that way? The crossword has fairly standard clues with an extra twist worked in. If you enjoy it (or don’t), you can let me know by posting a comment on this site.

Hi! falutin promises

Welcome to falutin.net, a hopefully promising new site.

I hope that if you read this, you will want to return again and again.

I promise not to write very often, so it will be easy to keep up.

I promise not to make this site maudlin or trivial. I promise not to twitter.

I hope this site will be irreverent, relevant, literate and readable.
