Done. And for those that care I'm now ashamed of this icon, thank goodness for the option to change 'em
How are you doing?
great day, nice weather :) but grid's not so easy.
It's cloudy here, but the grid is going okay :)
oh, are we having the same grid? lol!
I have the 3 middle columns filled in except for 2 numbers, and almost the middle 3 rows too.

Shadowwolf, my daughter has settled down. I think she just wanted tobe awake yesterday. Man, was it rough!

good day everybody
Sweet, finished with no marks.
hi all. almost got it.

Howdy Hosses and Hossettes!
Nailed that puppy!
Rank me, baby!
hi all... working on an earlier puzzle now to end the day
yikes, clicked on the ranking page too quickly after finishing today's puzzle and it didn't add my ranking point.. that's a shame :(
rankings are generated nightly, i believe
so if you did all the puzzles today, you wouldn't be elite until tomorrow
oh, gotcha, thanks for the tip, i was bitter first, then not so much since its an easy one, and now not at all :-D
that was me
hi all. wonder why my icon was blacked out...?
whoo! done with all the puzzles!
Hi guys! Anybody have any puzzle-solving tips for the harder puzzles? I do fine with the easy and medium crowd, but the hard ones tend to stump me. Any tips from you sudoku experts out there?
redhead - do you know how to do subscripts?
there's lots of information on the web about advanced sudoku strategies (some sites are totally incomprehensible, IMO, but the more graphics the better!) Wikipedia has a lot. What helped me the most was getting a program called Sudoku Susser, which is easy to find and download. It will walk you through puzzles step by step, giving hints about what techniques are needed to progress, and even highlights sections of the puzzle for you if you want.
Also, if you are already using subscripts (green numbers) to help you, you may be interested in the script that someone here wrote - it will auto-fill the green numbers for you. Click on my profile - the script is at the end. Paste it in the URL window of your browser and hit enter!
Wow, awesome - thanks guys!
np - have fun!
you can also use a program called simple sudoku (at www.angusj.com/sudoku/hints.php) to lay out the puzzles from iron sudoku, then let it guide you through how to solve it. there are all sorts of strategies like xwing, etc., but it's really all just common sense to eliminate possiblities 'til you have the answers.
sudoku susser does that too - you can actually drag the graphic into the program to enter a puzzle in.
I'm getting better at doing these without subscripts! Just finished - back later for the new puzzle :)
