  • Those wacky definitions....

    November 15, 2007

  • Ok, time for me to fess up. There's a very slight chance that my programming has something to do with weirdnet's weirdness. I'm making a single call to the WordNet database, and getting back all the defninitions; some post-processing then happens to select the likely most-common definition. The parameters I use to determine that come straight from WordNet, but there may well be a bug (or a feature!) in my code that's selecting these oddball definitions.

  • I secretly wondered if this might be the case, but dared not question thee.

    November 28, 2007

  • I spent a while looking for WeirdNet and came up with nothing meaningful. Umm, may I have my while back? But at least I now know the pelmet from whence the kooknyness descends. Relieved!

    November 28, 2007

  • There's the problem, John: you're getting defninitions mixed in with the definitions.

    November 28, 2007

  • By now, it's surely a feature... Maybe you're adding value by introducing us to definitions we'd otherwise overlook. Maybe.

    November 28, 2007

  • I'm thinking that way too: added value. WeirdNet has become a sort of Wordie sideshow. It would almost be a shame if it were to straighten itself out and behave. :-)

    November 28, 2007

  • It does have to live up to its name, after all - not being called NormalNet (or AccurateNet, for that matter).

    November 28, 2007

  • John, I posted a comment to this effect on the... some other page. (Faggot? Peeler?) I think the WeirdNet situation has enriched Wordie. I hope you do not decide to make it NormalNet. Think of the conversations it's spawned!

    Or even just think of the word spawn!

  • Won't someone think of the children spawn??!?!?!?!
