Tuesday 12 July 7-by-many FRAGILE puzzle
« on: July 13, 2022, 10:24:30 PM »
LAGGIER computer term; comparative form of laggy (being slow to respond esp. in gaming or video)
The greenest watt ever produced is the one you never use. Playing as jk1956 and John is my name.
When we come out of the Covid-19 crisis, we need to make sure recovery efforts address the Climate Crisis (which can't be solved using social distancing!)

We added laggy just a couple of years ago. The online Oxford and Wiktionary both give laggier and laggiest as inflected forms, and both these words are in use by people writing about games and technology.

Laggier and laggiest will be allowed in future as rare words.
