Re: Word validity questions

Coming back to this thread, I noticed that GOUTIER was disallowed in a show last week, although it appears to be ok on Apterous? Is this just a case of the Oxford Dictionary having been updated recently and changes not made it onto Apterous yet? Or just Susie disagreeing with the Apterous interpreta...

Re: Spoilers for Wednesday 7th August 2019 (Series 81, Prelim 27)

3 Octochamps in the first 6 weeks of the series! If this rate carries on, I wonder if we could see more than 8 Octochamps in total - would this be the first series it has ever happened in? If this happens, then I presume it's just tough luck to any Octochamps who don't make the top 8 - so they would...

Re: Word validity questions

Thanks Ray, that's really helpful - especially about the show using the Premium version (which I can access for free using my local library membership :) ) which I can see contains a lot more info on extensions of some words, and answers some of the other things I was wondering about.

Word validity questions

Hi all Yes I know there is a sticky thread from several years ago called "How do I know my word is valid" which I've read, but I have a few questions about comparing word validity between Apterous and the TV show, which I'd be interested if any of the crowd on here can answer. I presume the intentio...

Carl, we can happily send you a digital file of your show(s) once they have aired.
That's brilliant - thank you so much! Much easier than trying to work out how to do it via a recordable DVD player or USB dongles etc. Just got to actually get on the show now :)

Re: Recording Countdown to keep

Thanks, but it doesn't seem to be very easy to even buy a DVD recorder these days - they seem to have gone out of fashion in these times of streaming and Sky boxes etc. Any ideas or suggestions anyone?! - thanks.

Recording Countdown to keep

Hi all Technology question. When appearing on Countdown hopefully later this year, I'm wondering how it will be possible to record my episode(s) to keep for posterity (personal home use only, not trying to infringe any copyrights etc :) ). In the old days you could just record to VHS, but there does...
