Interesting site.  Apologies if it has already been discussed.

Interesting site. 

You sure about that?  All I get is a not-very-interesting blank screen.

When I turn on JavaScript again, I see a Flash animation. The site is run by Oxford Fajar (formerly Penerbit Fajar Bakti, link) in Malaysia.

Their webmaster needs to be shot. Very poorly done preloader and the site itself isn’t much better. Flash is fine when used sparingly, but sites done completely in Flash have been passe for years. I never really got much into the content because the format was so annoying.

Ran fine for me, and the format was entertaining.

Are you on Windows?  I’m not and my browser struggles with Flash.

The site works fine for me. (Linux, Seamonkey).

I am not all that interested in saving lost words, but I am interested in learning new words so it pleases me to use the Random button.

Diloricate. Somandric. Rhedarious!
