Sorry, we almost forgot to ‘update’ this bit and now we have to ‘start again’. We can say with some certainty that this word has 5 letters in it, and it’s certainly ‘not old’. It’s got two vowels and 3 consonants, and it’s a really upbeat kinda word, man.

Today’s answer is RENEW! As in, to refresh, to begin again. What an apt word for the first day of spring, which it just so happens today is. In Western Europe, at any rate, today is the spring equinox, where country folk sacrifice visitors from urban areas, in worship of their old gods. No I’m just kidding, they don’t actually do that – that happens at the solstice, later in the year.

But it is the start of spring, which feels like good news. 🎵 Spring time for Wordle and Wordlers. Winter for Scrabble and crosswords 🎵’. See you tomorrow! 

Duncan Bell

Duncan is the former lifestyle editor of T3 and has been writing about tech for almost 15 years. He has covered everything from smartphones to headphones, TV to AC and air fryers to the movies of James Bond and obscure anime. His current brief is everything to do with the home and kitchen, which is good because he is an excellent cook, if he says so himself. He also covers cycling and ebikes – like over-using italics, this is another passion of his. In his long and varied lifestyle-tech career he is one of the few people to have been a fitness editor despite being unfit and a cars editor for not one but two websites, despite being unable to drive. He also has about 400 vacuum cleaners, and is possibly the UK's leading expert on cordless vacuum cleaners, despite being decidedly messy. A cricket fan for over 30 years, he also recently become T3's cricket editor, writing about how to stream obscure T20 tournaments, and turning out some typically no-nonsense opinions on the world's top teams and players.

Before T3, Duncan was a music and film reviewer, worked for a magazine about gambling that employed a surprisingly large number of convicted criminals, and then a magazine called Bizarre that was essentially like a cross between Reddit and DeviantArt, before the invention of the internet. There was also a lengthy period where he essentially wrote all of T3 magazine every month for about 3 years. 

A broadcaster, raconteur and public speaker, Duncan used to be on telly loads, but an unfortunate incident put a stop to that, so he now largely contents himself with telling people, "I used to be on the TV, you know."
