T9Word Foiled - 10/7/05
So Jeremy, who's even more of a raging nerd than I am, has ruined my "Who Can Find the Longest T9 Word-Match" game by running it through a computer program that generates every T9 match ever. The longest one is "Claustrophobia/claustrophobic," weighing in at 14 letters. But, like most of the other top 100 words on the list, it's pretty lame - they don't start getting interesting until "Substation/starvation" and "September/sequences". Still, I like the ring some of them would make in a sentence, like "The victimizer victimizes" or "Surrender your suspenders!"

Thus, a new game: Who Can The Most Numerically Repetitive Word? As you may have noticed in typing certain words like "Noon" (6666), some words are very slick in T9. I guess this is a contest to no longer find the worst words for T9, but the best words. Some examples:

Tomorrow
86666769

Noon, Moon, or Mono
6666

Lighting
5444464

Abracadabra
22722232272

And this last one's not just a best word… it's a magic word.
