CHAT LOG for Wednesday, April 18, 2007
ok, new resolution: no greens on easys...
man, crosshatching really is useless on this one...
finding a starting point doesn't seem to be so easy
ah, got it
morning, all. Go.
One green and everything came together. Off to work.
Difficulty score 15. Once you find a good starting point things get rolling.
but finding that starting point??????
looks easy but having trouble getting started
It helps to find what *can't* go somewhere to start the puzzle off.
Started off with a virtual crosshatch. Still not rolling.
I need to go green. These easies have been frustrating me lately.
OOoh? I missed a loner. I hate that!
i like that an "easy" on this site is still harder than anything you'll find in a newspaper
Darn it. I have to start over.
done, no green
You have my admiration. I'm on my second time through and stuck, using greens.
nailed that puppy!
rank me, baby!
No green, red, or checkpoints

Today had a weird snowball feel of sorts. I didn't get a good start going for a little while, and when it started to click, it moved fast.
Finally did it. But I was interrupted by a roto rooter job. Still, I found it a difficult puzzle.
I had a lot of trouble really getting it going. There were no singles at the outset or anything that I found.
To get started, cross-hatch the rows and columns, not the blocks. There are at least 2 rows where you can find digits by cross-hatching and get things going.
how are you
why dont you talk
We do, just, sometimes we're all focused on particularly hard puzzles and such. Scroll through the log -- you'll notice there are quiet times and busy times that just kinda happen.
Done! A lot of work for an easy. Used greenies but no guesses.
I'm working November 10th from last year -- surprisingly difficult for a medium. I'm guessing I struggle with the mediums so much because there's some mid-level tech I just haven't learned.
nstrich looks like a bicycle.
now that was 'easy'
. . . When suddenly, in a flurry of mouse-clicks, the puzzle was completed, the culprit already gone.
musta been easy for me to do it in my exhausted condition
not an easy easy for sure
