    Here is my favourite Scrabble anecdote, incidentally. Actual Scrabble talk starts ~2:25 for the purists.

    I sold you and you sold me."

    And the attempt is on. Scaly in fine form at the moment. They are up to the 21st game and each board is only taking 6 to 7 minutes to complete.

    Watched a bit of it, can see how they might break the record if they keep making up words. The hell is an 'umu'.

    Nah, fair play to the Beevs, and the other bloke.

    No idea what an umu is, never heard of it.

    It's not the most spectator friendly game though is it, scrabble.

    Umu may refer to:

    A variety of earth ovens in Polynesia, including:
    Māori umu tī, used to cook Cordyline australis and other varieties of Cordyline with similar large tap roots.
    Māori hāngi, also called umu, especially in older texts

    Makes sense. I used to live in PNG; they had a similar thing there (earth ovens) but called it a 'mumu'. Suspect Scrabblers aren't overly concerned with definitions though.

    Just clicked the video, words on this board 'ugliest' and 'crim'. Targetting the Aussie audience then.

    Remember when I use to watch Scaly on Countdown (good times). Interaction with Des O’Conner was awkward to say the least. Scaly has lost a lot of weight, shame the hair seems to be going as well.

    Good stuff though, great cause.

    Wait, what happened?

    I watched for a bit during the day. And then when I came back home tonight, the stream was offline.

    Just after halfway Ray stood up for a break and stumbled backwards and onto the floor. Basically he was very dizzy, had a cold sweat and achy. We were concerned it was to do with his diabetes but it turned out that he was badly dehydrated, he had really low blood pressure and whatnot. He's in hospital getting his fluids replaced.

    That's too bad. Were you on world record setting pace? I hope you raised the funds you were hoping for.
