Hi! I am running an information channel. I would like to ask if somebody can make me a script that will pull the word for the day and synonym for the day from dictionary.com, and then it will send to the channel on a x minutes . Thank you very much

I don't know if you have tried searching the TCL Archive, but perhaps take a look at these two, they might not be "Exactly" what you want, but perhaps you can modify/work on it.

http://tclarchive.org/search.php?str=rosc2112+dictionary&cb1=t&cb2=a&cb3=d&sub.x=0&sub.y=0

Perhaps adding a timer or bind cron could be added to make the script "fetch" one word per day Cool

Goga,

Have you tried http://tclarchive.org/download.php?id=1554
The site that script uses seems to be unchanged in many years:)

Goga,

I loaded and tried out the script I linked above,
[22:53:50] - incith:dictionary-1.5 loaded.
It seems fine and quite usable:)

Quote:
<SpiKe^^> !dict usable
<MzBitch2u> Adjective (1/3) (adj) useable, usable (capable of being put to use) "usable byproducts"
-MzBitch2u- usable: Adjective 3 @ http://wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s=usable

!dict --adj2-3 usable
<MzBitch2u> Adjective (2/3) (adj) functional, usable, useable, operable, operational (fit or ready for use or service) "the toaster was still functional even after being dropped"; "the lawnmower is a bit rusty but still usable"; "an operational aircraft"; "the dishwasher is now in working order"
<MzBitch2u> Adjective (3/3) (adj) available, usable, useable (convenient for use or disposal) "the house is available after July 1"; "2000 square feet of usable office space"


Still no Word of the Day, but
I must disagree with the "I tried all Dictonary scripts, but No Scripts is working now a days."
