@uTH - an alternating chain, so o cannot be x
back to it
I'll give it a 10.
I don't know at what point it is okay to ask, I know I haven't seen it done too often, but I need help. I have tried to solve a certain puzzle at least 30 times in the last month with no success. If anyone could find it in his or her heart to give me some numbers from the December 3, 2011 puzzle you would have my undying gratitude. Thank you. The other five that I haven't gotten yet are from 2016 so I have a long time to go before I ask for help on those. In addition to undying gratitude, you will also be my angel. Thanks
I haven't tried that one yet so I can't help in that way ... but when I had one like that I took a print of the start of the puzzle and did it the hard way ... on paper ... I think it helped being forced to do it slowly ... if the idea works for you, you're welcome to it
joey - sorry, that one's still on the 'to-do' list
sorry joey - 2011 is one of those "dark" years...as well as 2012, 2013, 2010 and most of 2009... "sigh"
joey - i have that one done, what would help most?
765129834 is the top line for 3 Dec 2011 - hope that helps!
Spelitt, you are my angel. Thanks for the top line. That and one guess got me through it. The_Mad_Egyptian, thanks for the offer. In the future, I think, that any one line should give anyone all the help needed to solve it. At least that is my thought. I am down to 5, they are all 2016. Even though I have tried each one of those more than 10 times, I still have hope. Thanks again.
doseffing, btw, I tried paper, but that didn't work for me.
