SIGN

I may have an incorrect interpretation of rule #3: I thought you had to replace a letter but the other three had to be in the same position. THUG to HUGE moves H from 2nd position to 1st, U from 3 to 2 and G from 4 to 3. Either method is fine with me.

3. You can only change one letter, the three unchanged letters must remain in the same order.

SINS

Things that sort of break the rules - at least those rules set by the creator - though not the creator of this thread!

Actually I didn't break the rules: I thought I'd write MISS but then I saw the rules also allow me to put the S between the I and S in MIS.

Things I have to replace in my son's computer, or: people currently mourning the death of Michael Jackson.

Chipper, your interpretation of the rule is exactly what I originally had in mind, but when I saw others doing things slightly different without actually breaking the rule, I thought I could either clarify the rule, or let it go. So I decided on the latter.

HAAA! ...Actually, hadaso may be talking about his son's commuter (travelling machine), so I have bought him an "m" just incase

I was almost in one because the "I" doesn't really show any difference when you boldface it. However, the red helped to show what letter was changed.
