Out of the Blue

I was very dubious about Xfinity as a provider after moving, but things have gone pretty well so far (knock wood). In fact, I got a present from them this morning, as I was informed that my download speed was bumped by 50% to 300 Mbps and my upload speed is doubled to 10 Mbps in a free upgrade. Ever the nerd, I am quite pleased about this, even though I know the difference will rarely be evident. But I think those of use who lived through accessing the internet using dial-up and modems will always be extra obsessed with high-speed access. I don't think someone who grew up with broadband can ever appreciate that. Sort of the way my grandparents were obsessed with stocking canned food after living through the depression. But you know, just a trifle less dramatic.

I've seen reports that the transition to the NY Times website wiped out Wordle stats. I just played and my stats were there, so this seems to have been fixed.

Oops, but check your settings... I didn't realize until I shared my result here that while the game left Dark Mode on, it turned Hard Mode off.
Quick question to nerdlers out there.
Do you think it's ok to display the colored squares since the position of the =equal= sign can be easily determined?

A friend of mine asked me not to send him the colored squares because he knew my starter words. I told him to get out of my mind and that I changed my starter words. I also quit sending the colored squares.
My question, "I think he's still in my mind, what should I do?"
