Word of the Day: Seymour CRAY (35D: Supercomputing Pioneer Seymour) – Seymour Roger Cray (September 28, 1925 – October 5, 1996) was an American electrical engineer and supercomputer architect who designed a series of the world’s fastest computers for decades. He founded Cray Research, which built many of these machines. Called the “Father of the Supercomputer,” Cray is credited with creating the supercomputer industry. Current Hewlett-Packard Chief Technology Officer Joel S. Birnbaum said of him: “It seems impossible to overstate his influence on the industry; Much of what today’s high-performance computers routinely do was at the edge of reliability. Seymour visualized them. According to Larry Smarr, director of the University of Illinois’ National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the time, Cray was “the Thomas Edison of the supercomputing industry.” (Wikipedia)

Just work. “The joy connected with words” was this, regardless of the opposite. It’s a hint of death – it’s like being hit with a hammer, but more tiring, somewhat less violent. Same clue, over and over. And a clue that tells you nothing special, no wordplay, no cleverness, nothing added. Just thud thud thud thud thud. You know exactly what to do from the beginning, and then the hard work of doing it begins. Has my life been improved by knowing that the letters in WOEFUL are in the order WONDERFUL? not at all. Did any of this bring a glimmer of that “aha” feeling that makes solving solid clues so satisfying? No, no one could do that. And EFFETE? We all use it effectively in our normal, everyday lives. I doubt anyone uses EFFETE even 1/1000th. What a sad pair of alleged “opposites”. And hiding FASTING in FEASTING isn’t exactly what you call awesome. Thematically, this was scary, and the fear permeated all other aspects of the solving experience.
Its strength is mainly in hanging theatrics without anything special to go on from the clues. But I managed to add to the problem by making one small and plausible mistake, which had a negative impact on my success in solving it. Once I got into the NE corner I thought I made pretty quick work of the short downs (10 to 13-under). Crosses that seem to work for me: ON ICE and NOLTE worked, EFFECTIVE and NED worked, so I thought everything was fine. But one letter is missing. SNORT OCTAVE and TEEMED were fine, but instead of PILE IN (11D: put it all in together), I put in a file, and as Robert Frost didn’t quite say, that made all the difference. I couldn’t get rid of FILE IN because it looked too accurate. All valid crosses confirmed its validity. So…hint from the hysterologist… -I had SFOT and had no idea, actually, that “area” was anatomical. So I thought maybe a geographic region, a cape or peninsula, maybe (?) was named for this person. I do not know. I’m like “is the U.S. FOT an ‘area’ of…?” All this because of my struggle with *two* adjacent long sentences, each missing just *one* letter, but *both* of which I couldn’t parse. Here was the grid:
9D: Did you see that the word clear has a whole English word at the end of the transition to extremes? Well, let me tell you, when you see a complete English word like this at the end of your answer, it’s very (very) hard to shake the idea that it’s an independent word in the answer. Instead of GO NUCLEAR, I kept looking for phrases ending in “CLEAR” (off!?). This is a very, very sad thing and the best answer in the grid is that it happened around the corner. Also, the only possibility I see in 21A is: “You betcha!” (“I’m sure!”) “I’ll shout at you.” So there, I had the opposite of my CLEAR problem, which was *couldn’t see that there was already a lone word at the end of this phrase*. The word “AM”. So, to recap, FILE IN => NO IDEA ABOUT THE OBJECTIVE => A seemingly impossible double prediction fault with GO NUCLEAR and ” I SURE AM .” I don’t even remember how I got out in the end.
Today I get my first dose of vaccine, which is really exciting. We hope you all have been doing your level best to get yours ASAP. Take care. A famous statement in Gotham City / THUR 12-13-18 / Words received from fellow psychics, by name / 1950s TV sex symbol / Some West Point students

Hello, Syndication Solutions! (i.e. most of my readers—those reading this Thursday, January 17th). It’s early January and that means it’s time for my annual vote for blog donations, where I ask regular readers to think about what the blog means to them each year and donate accordingly. As you know, I write this blog every once in a while. Single. day. Well, I pay young people to write two days a month, but every day I do. Well, sometimes I take a break and my generous friends sit, but otherwise I’m a non-stop blogging machine. It’s really a lot of work. It’s at least as much work as my day job, and unlike my day job it *isn’t* the time – I usually work from 10pm to midnight or early in the morning and write to get the blog up and running. And readers can enjoy the Internet with their breakfast or on the train or in the forest or wherever they are ready to read. I don’t have much to spend, just my time. As I said before, I have no intention of “monetizing” the blog in any way beyond asking for money once a year. I hate commercials in real life, so why subject you all to it? I actually thought about redesigning the site earlier this year, making it somehow slicker or fancier. I started the process partially, but when I let it slip that I was thinking about it, the feedback was swift and clear: Don’t change. After all, people don’t really want bells and whistles. Blogger Blogger’s plain, internet-retro style only. So that’s what you get. It’s no technicality to change the blog, it’s basically just my voice. My funny opinionated voice screams at you with joy and rage about how much I love/hate them. I hope this site has made me laugh or taught you things or shared joy or anger or failure or given you someone to yell at. I’m fine. I hope I’ve introduced some of you to the wider world of vocabulary beyond the NYT. I have a passion for puzzles and (mostly) love the people who solve them – so many of my friends and thousands you’ve never met. I can’t, and won’t, stop, and I hope you need to support that effort.
Some people refuse to pay for what they can get for free. Others have no money to spare. All are welcome to read the blog – the site will always be open and free. But
