just for fun, I made today’s microblogvember word “graze” my first guess on today’s wordle. It worked out just fine.

Wordle 521 3/6

@bnmnetp ooops, that did not work out as expected. maybe that explains the lack of wordle sharing on micro.blog. Maybe @manton is anti wordle. 😜😱

@bnmnetp I play Wordle every day! 🙂 Here's the problem: Markdown requires 2 spaces at the end of each line to wrap correctly, and we've decided to keep strict to that even though I really want to add a special exception for Wordle.

@manton Thanks, I did not know that about Markdown. I typically preview my posts, but I was writing that one from the micro.blog app on my iPad. Feels awkward to go back and edit the original, so I will leave it.

@manton Any reason not to detect the Wordle-specific emoji and insert the appropriate characters? Or will that get too fidgety?

@cdevroe Fidgety. I might still do it, but too many exceptions like that create problems later for code maintainability and documentation. "It works like this except here and except for Wordle and..."

@manton Totally understand. But I will say, a bit of code that says "Wordle exception" is one I might let slide! :) (And Stupid of course)

@bnmnetp You can edit your posts on Micro.blog, if you want to add the 2 spaces. PS. Congrats on the Wordle victory!

@jean Thanks, I may just do that. In addition I want to sincerely apologize to anyone who feels like I ruined Wordle for them today by giving away two letters.
