This is, among other things, the home of the Internet Anagram Server. It is really interesting to see the differences in number of anagrams for various words. For example, although AMTE has only 6 anagrams [e.g., TEAM] and LISTSERVE has only 24 anagrams [e.g. ELVES STIR], AMTE LISTSERVE has 68 pages--yes pages--of anagrams. Some words have no anagrams or just one [e.g., SYDNEY has only one] while AUSTRALIA has over 80--see my previous post].
Even though I understand why some words or phrases have large numbers, I find myself blown away by those that run on for more than 50 pages. And I am also impressed with the speed. Basically the 68 pages for AMTE LISTSERVE were there instantaneously.
Of course, I'm still having trouble getting my mind around those Hubble photographs that purport to show what the universe looked like 14 billion years ago!
Just call me easily impressed, I guess. :)
