Thayo, this is not an anagram thread.. Please read the first post on page 78, and post accordingly.

Then place your anagram in the proper thread please.

words :)

And a question?
When did we move from four letters aka "FLAP" to five?
If the only thing allowed was to change one letter..

It must have restarted somewhere right?
Also, is there any rule following this kind of thing, mathematical or otherwise? Like adding one 'bit' to your symmetric key crypto (binary) doubles the size of the key spaces possible solutions?

Yes actually it started on page 53  and I am thinking of splitting the thread to correspond with the five letters and no rearranging of letters only replacing one letter back into the original position of the old letter you remove..ok... Please let me know what you think.. we will then have 4 letter word game as well as a 5 letter word game.
