Yup, then I've no doubt it's the same game. Most of us are playing the same games within 2-3 days of each other, in my experience. So when I blow a game like that, I know someone will break the record fairly soon. (Sometimes I get a second chance. In 1 game I found ESTIMATION close to the end of the clock. Quickly tried REESTIMATION but it was invalid. Then saw under- but too late. 3 days later I got to play UNDERESTIMATION and set 2 new records.) I lose a few records every day so it might just as well be to you. I'm closing in an odometer-type milestone myself so am getting stoked about it like you did with yours. I'll let you know when I get there.

Hey, I appreciate your leaving me some good options!

Checked your odometer and yes you're getting close to 2k! Interesting you have more longest records than best score records. My stats are the opposite. Back in the days before the super-long words, I used to be really fond of the QU- boards.
