Nancy, this 'Word' sounds like a fantastic game -- it tests both your
skill and your reflexes, sort of like a Space Invaders for technical

What happens if you make it all the way to the end of the document?
Do you restart at page 1, but the bugs start coming at you in waves,

Has anyone else played this game? Is there a way to win, or does the
game always kill you in the end?
