I'd like to use the word-a-day words when I'm off-line (ie not connected to the internet). Does anyone have a piece of code, link, java script etc that might allow me to download the words to my laptop so I can actually use them when I'm writing and not connected?

If not, is there a downloadable dictionary/thesaurus out there that anyone might recommend?

Thank you, Keith

Pen and notebook™. It's available at brick and mortar stores everywhere.

Hi, k, and welcome. growf danged unhelpful though not malicious responses argh

I don't know much about technology but if your laptop can get e-mail just open the W's A D on it and they'll be stored there and thus available all the time, won't they?

And, thanks to tsuwm I know about Onelook, which I think is great. I esp. love the reverse look-up option even though my success rate with it is only about ten percent.

Spam festival again. Oh? I missed something, sorry. Think I'll get rid of the other one now.

Is this a new word? I have never heard about it before.

Onelook looks like a great reference site.
