My wife's gotten hooked on some online FB word scramble game. You get 6 letters and fill in the crossword puzzle with words using those letters. Most of the words use fewer than all 6 letters. Score points or when you hit a wall you can buy hints (with real $$) to help solve it. It's fun to look over her shoulder while I'm enroute to grab a beer and offer any suggestions that I happen to see. You can stare at those letters and simply draw a blank, but rearrange them and bingo!
I remember somewhere in my dusty TI disk collection I have a program that gave you every possible combination of letters fed to it. It was either a cheat program or one that helped you create scramble puzzles. That would be perfect for hints with this FB game. Only problem is I don't recall its name or which of 200-some disks it might be on. And my TI is boxed up anyway. Searching through the emulator programs I have on the Mac, the only "Scramble" games I show are all versions of the same shoot'emup arcade spinoff.
Anyone familiar with such a program? One strategy she uses is to just pick 'em out at random and that will often help. The program I'm thinking of would automate that and give a list to pick from. Thanks!
