So frustrating, the server temper tantrum went on for a long time today.
I finished the puzzle in 20 minutes but the server threw another temper tantrum and I lost it all...
digondda, I'd suggest that while you're working on the puzzle, click on "save as checkpoint" every once in a while. Then if the server throws a tantrum, you'll still have what you've saved to that point.
done, with greens
Jainie - I usually do save as checkpoint throughout the puzzle, but today it wouldn't let me as no sooner had i started the puzzle than the server threw another tantrum.
I finished the whole thing and then WHAM. It didn't save it. Here we go again.
Dooes anyone know why the ranks of the elite never seem to exceed 60? I've not done a formal study, but whenever I look, the total number is under 60.
EZPZ. There was a little logic different from the usual, but not hard. No green. No guess. No waiting.
The new kind of logic was of this form: "I'm going to need a 5 in this block and one in this line, but unless it goes where the block and line intersect, it won't go anywhere else.
To Jrs - I'm guessing it has to do with how many have paid and have 'red status' - all the way done to Ed** - notice the gap in totals. I paid for a 'red status' to accumulate as many points as my best friend who started playing 2 years before me. I know that I will have 'Elite' status someday - but I probably have 2,500+ 'easy' to accomplish this level.
change done to down. This great Sudoku site is not a bell curve with as many '1's as '5's', it is more like a steep ski slope with 80% easy and 5% expert.
