7 dies, was SKEIN
 
63 dies (was SKU)
 
8 dies was SKI
 
gah, I thought that was 8 but wasn't sure
 
I think all three of those still go over my head (although I'm guessing one of them relates to combinators)
 
3:20 AM
@Deusovi Everything was stalled enough you probably should just have guessed.
 
yeah, probably
 
9 dies, was SKIP
 
@Sp3000 SKU is like a product code in the retail industry
 
Oh Uno, right

3:26 AM
6: incorrect
 
contact 6?

5 dies, SKYLIGHT too
 
10 dies (SKYNET)
 
3:35 AM
skype is a bit far from being obsolete, but okay :P
 
Yeah, I don't think everyone's going to switch to Discord for any time soon
 
true, it was meant to be partially a joke
 
65: game
 
contact 65
 
tbh I've blocked all my contacts on Skype for about a year now - I no longer have any reason to use it
 
3:37 AM
skype's making inroads in the enterprise now that MS has pivoted Lync to Skype for Business
 
video calling was basically the last reason I would use Skype for anything
right, enterprise stuff. afaik Slack is more common, but I could be wrong
 
95% of fortune 100 companies used Skype for Business last I checked
 
(and I'm not sure what call capabilities it has)
 
or was it 98%? Something like that
 
ok, so some pretty big "in roads" :P
 
3:39 AM
contact 65
 
contact 65
 
Hmm pass 65, not coming to mind

1+ correct
 
(fyi tad busy here, sorry if slow)
 
i assume that's the intended formatting for 12
12: it's not HIGHLIGHTING i think
 
contact 12
 
4:25 AM
12. Yup
 
100: ...
 
unicode nonbreaking space wasn't good enough, it still broke. then I realized the post-* space wasn't even needed. hehe
100: It's not HUNDRED
 
hmm, guess I'll need to think of clues now too
 
100: correct

10: ...
 
4:33 AM
9: It's not a HOMOGRAPH, but I doubt that
 
9: incorrect
 
PASS 9
 
contact 10, maybe
 
there's probably more than one, but I'll guess hamiltonian for 9
 
9 incorrect
I was thinking of HISTOGRAM
 
4:34 AM
ew. :)
 
contact 10
 
Are hamiltonian graphs are probably too mathsy for you, Rubio
 
yeah, I have no idea what one is
 
60: just the musical part of that
 
But that is more CS than math
 
4:35 AM
60: It's not HARMONY ?
PASS 10
 
no on 60
 
I've got a couple for 10... what you got ffao?
 
60: It's not HAMILTON then
 
hyperlink?
 
@boboquack Isn't it a path through a graph, not a graph itself?
 
4:36 AM
10: correct
 
cool. had that, or HREF
 
bah. I didn't notice the link.
 
@HelkaHomba I thought so too, but I haven't taken uni maths like ffao
 
yes, 60 is HAMILTON
 
Rubio defending: H O
 
4:36 AM
@Rubio I thought you would notice the edit
 
a hamiltonian graph is a graph that has a hamiltonian path
 
I didn't. :)
@ffao ... not helpful.
 
@Rubio that's a path through all vertices without visiting a vertex twice
 
that's sort of like recursion n. see recursion.
 
without visiting a vertex twice
 
4:37 AM
and a hamiltonian cycle is a cycle through all vertices without visiting a vertex twice
 
ah.
traveling salesman, ish
 
that's why I said it was more CS than math
 
2 lives btw
 
1: Water
 
1: It's not HOH
 
4:39 AM
1: correct
 
1": ... water
 
contact 1"

1'': ✘
 
4:40 AM
contact 67
 
hey @Sherlock9 welcome :)
 
61: festive, poison berries
 
@Alconja no, it's " not ''!
 
Hello o/
 
contact 61
 
4:40 AM
67: it's not HOLMIUM and I approve you using this clue ;)
61: It's not HOLLY
 
yes 61
 
any active clues that aren't on the starboard?
 
@boboquack ??
 
wait, is the X a clue?
 
yup
 
4:42 AM
oh, wait... 1'' (✘) is not a clue, that's a confirmation that 1" guess of HOT was wrong
... water is the clue
 
oh. heh
 
3. Ad follower?
 
3: It's not HOMINEM
 
1": It's not HOLY ?
 
4:42 AM
@Alconja the clue was 1", but you said 1''
 
I did
I take full responsibility to this slight against the good graces of contact
1" is HOLY
 
5: H[RO]*
 
Okay yeah 3's too broad, and I swear I've run into that mistake before (intended was HOC)
 
5: it's not HORROR
 
5: correct
 
4:43 AM
99: not entirely solid
 
99: It's not HOLOGRAM
 
99: not HOLOGRAM
 
62: storage
 
Actually, what is the syntax for (you didn't guess my clue correctly)?
 
that's fine
 
4:45 AM
22: nope (or similar) works, as does "not <guess>"
 
note: I wanted to clue ffao's C4 frenzy (last word) on H, but I don't know how much attention Rubio has been paying :P
 
as long as you have the number and a negative of some sort (No, -1, wrong), but apparently you shouldn't use ✘
 
6: someone who has (monetary investment + dwelling + incredibles villian)
 
Alright, thanks
 
I got ✘, but it does look bold
 
4:45 AM
contact 62
 
best not to use it
 
@Alconja If you do 11 ✘ you're fine. If you do 11: ✘ it's dangerous. :)
 
(Re: ffao ditto C4 frenzy)
 
@Rubio gotcha :P
 
88: sweetener
 
4:47 AM
contact 88
 
contact 88
 
88: It's not HONEY

4:47 AM
contact 63
 
63: it's not HOMO
 
contact 63
 
yes 63
 
74: habitat
 
6 seems to be something I've never heard of
74: It's not HOUSE perhaps
 
4:49 AM
6 is probably unnecesarily complex
 
contact 6
 
74 nope
 
6 is perhaps something along the lines of HOLDING HOUSE SYNDROME, but that does nothing for me
 
you're close-ish
 
4:50 AM
contact 74
 
yeah I dunno what it actually is
PASS 6
 
you don't need to reply anything other than no to guesses :P
I think 6 is hostage, for stock+"home" syndrome
 
74: It's not HOTEL or HOUSING either
 
4:51 AM
ew. that's gross
 
yea I know
 
Rubio defending: H O B
 
contact is where gross puzzles come to die
 
no, it's clearly where they come to thrive ;)
 
2 dies (HOWDY (howdy howdy))
 
4:52 AM
62 dies as HOLD
 
74 dies as HOME
Not sure if HOUSE was too close
99 dies as HOLLOW

contact 54
 
4:53 AM

contact 55
contact 6
 
PASS 54
and 6 is just wrong
 
aparently I'm bad
 
54 HOBBLE?
 
4:54 AM
contact 54 :P
 
54 correct - HOBBLE
 
HOBBLE ✔ ✔
 
wasn't gollum a hobbit before he got corrupted?
 
1 not HOB, 55 not HOBBY LOBBY, and 6 is definitely not HOBBIT
 
so, pre-gollum?
 
4:55 AM
55 was HOBBY LOBBY I'm guessing
 
gollum was like a hobbit
 
so yeah, pre-gollum
 
...yea
I don't know why I said ex-
 
and the defense passes to @Sherlock9 - have fun
 
4:56 AM
Sherlock9 defending: M

60: Fleance foe
 
PASS 60
 
don't pass unless it's contacted
