So, I did some fiddling around by hand with this week's puzzle. I didn't find the answer, and I didn't figure I would have time to work on it more or even write a program for it (even though I think all i had to do was modify an existing program). So I went to the Internet Anagram Server. Their advanced search lets you specify, among other things, the maximum number of words to return. So i just told it to return a maximum of two words, and it returned a very short list. The correct answer was there (COMPUTER USER), but i also found a couple of others worth mentioning. COMET PURSUER might actually fit the criteria. I imagine it's quite possible that more than 60% of Americans have seen a comet in their lives. SCROTUM PUREE was just horribly evocative.

Hmm, I really should be concentrating more on work, but I think this might be a reaction from the hard push yesterday to get that batch out. At least I got an attaboy email from my supervisor. That was pretty cool.

And in other breaking news, I am officially working from home on Friday. Yay!

Yeah, I used the anagram server, too. Meant to make an entry about scrotum puree.

I also think a case could be made for PURE CONSUMER, though perhaps more than 60% of Americans fit the label.

Dur dur, more than 60%, that's what the puzzle says, la la, I can read.

I was wondering why I didn't pick up on PURE CONSUMER when I was browsing the list. Then I realized that it was because PURE CONSUMER wasn't on the list. It's missing the T.

Ah yes. This would be because I meant PURE CUSTOMER.
