I get the feeling Angie is mocking my terminology. Anybody else have a problem with "tandem virtual" or "bent unique rectangle?"

I have to admit that I have no idea what either term means. I also know that I could search and find an explanation online. Whether my poor brain would be able to use the information is another question!

Explanations: A "virtual" is when, for example, you know what row within a block a number goes, but you don't know which cell in that row. So the "virtual" blocks numbers from that row in other blocks just as a number would.
A "bent unique rectangle" is a unique rectangle with a "reflecting pair" (aka "diagonal pair") that bends it. The following is disallowed, if you can interpret the notation, for the same reason a rectangle of all paired corners is disallowed.

Did it, no green, one nap, one unlucky guess. Nothing fancy.

Oh, I forgot to say what "tandem virtual" means. That's when one virtual sets up a second virtual.
