CHAT LOG for Monday, April 30, 2007
12 filled, going green...
done - missed one and mightve been able to do it, but greens are easier...
let there be go
got 17. going green
Like Andy, I have filled 17, resisting going green
Aha, solved the 6 in the top row, moving again.
good morning... Start!
not too bad
Done, no greens, but it wasn't easy.
I haven't gone green yet... but I may need to soon.
I've got over 30 filled in though
You can do it
HA! thanks for the encouragement... just as you said that I found a few more ;)
12 left still no greens
that was a good way to wake up :)
I'm stuck. May have to use greens.
Got one more by double virtual crosshatch.
Going green. OH! I missed a loner. I hate when that happens.
Real easy after that loner. Not even pairs needed.
Now I'm in the bottom row of the regulars, which I consider less of a distinction than being in the top row of the newbies.
hmm, I've used a double xwing and a unique rectangle in conjunction with intersections to find some cells today. yuck. Suppose I should finish the puzzle though.
Hmm, nothing else too fancy. Another medium without greens.
hmm, I am repetitive today.
Difficulty score 25. Cross-hatching, virtual cross hatching and missing digit scans are the only techniques used by the computer. I used a hidden triple to break it open.
OrangeSlice, I saw a couple of X-wings, but on closer examination it turned out that cross-hatching gave the same information.
Rule of thumb, when an X-wing is confined to a chute (a band or stack of blocks) then it really isn't an X-wing, the same information can be obtained by cross-hatching the rows or columns.
Spreadeagle, thanks for the encouragement not to go green. I was stuck with 17 filled in too.
Not too bad for a medium.
done, way too much green. My eyes need to be checked. I missed so much today
off to archives. I finally made pro!!
Grats RodeoRogue! I'm on the cusp of it myself, and hope to get enough points to break in. :)
I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!
Today's wasn't too bad with some effort -- in the archives now. :)
ick. today's made me sick. but it was mainly for my own blindness.
I've had two easy puzzles in archives so far, and this hard, and I think that'll push me into pro tomorrow, although it's going to be on the edge.
I think I'm a little over 100 short of being in the experts.
hello, anyone still here?
