Hello...

I used to have a small simple program for finding words. It was meant to help
with crossword puzzles, but I used it to help me create passwords. The
interface would have one field where you'd enter in a question mark for each
unknow character in the word. For instance ?????1 would return every
five-letter word in its dictionary, and ?a??? would return every five letter
word with the second letter 'a'.

Unfortunately I can't find my archive of it now that I reformatted.

Any suggestions?

Thx,
D.

Yippee! That's it!

Funny which little apps you just don't feel right unless you have 'em. This one
helps me a ton when created dozens of passwords for users.

Thanks! Appreciate it.
YW. :)

I believe that's another app "you won't find anywhere else". Thanks SOS
for keeping it available as a download. :)

I use it for playing Scrabble, too!
hmmm. . . Doesn't your opponent notice? ;)

Jo - remind me of what your highest Scrabble score was, would you
please? I'm in a masochistic mood. . .

About 525 in a head to head.

It included an eight letter word over 2 triple word squares scoring
about 185.

You're welcome.

Feel free to re read and weep. Still - look on the bright side - we
all need something to aspire to...
