Work on Your Scrabble

Here's a website devoted to letting you improve your Scrabble skillz during online deadtime. Very nice, although I wouldn't be too surprised to see the site go dark before too long because of copyright anality.

I went through a pretty hard-core Scrabble phase about a year ago after reading Word Freak, Stefan Fatsis' extremely entertaining book on the world of high-stakes Scrabble. I killed hours at work sitting around anagramming things. The whole thing died when Rebecca complained that I'd mutated from "friendly game" into "bloodthirsty competitor" in our household Scrabble games, and I've laid off the practice ever since.

But I still think that site looks like a good time-waster.
