I’ve mentioned here before my low-grade mania for mentally re-ordering random collections of letters, a la Scrabble, into words. I had it happen again this morning with the ORCL/BEA deal, with that part of my brain noticing it was seven letters, and therefore a possible Scrabble set.
So, what are the words made by combining ORCL and BEA? According to Scrabble.com there are 130 of them, with the two of the longest being the six-letter CORBEL (to provide a wall with a bracket) and CABLER (one that supplies a cable). Two cable-ish words …. spooky.
Mind you, there is a third six-letter word you can make from ORCLBEA: That is Oracle, of course. Ooooooh, Scrabble apparently approves.
