been staring at greens for the last 5 minutes ... I'm missing something here.

skizzybiz

the chat log seems to indicate that looking for a triple might help. i've not gotten stuck yet, and i'm not using greens, so we'll see :)
2:53 pm
ShadeEagle

yeah, I know, which is what I'm looking for. either I haven't found it yet or I'm missing something stupid in the middle of this.
2:56 pm
skizzybiz

don't know what to tell you -- i didn't need a triple, or even a hidden pair. done, no greens.
2:56 pm
skizzybiz

no loners either
2:57 pm
ShadeEagle

yeah, I'll figure it out.

oddly enough, now that I do it without greens it's done in three minutes.
3:07 pm

i keep trying to tell people it's easier that way :)

I agree with earlier chats... I find doing a puzzle without greens is often easier. However, once I get stuck, greens usually open it right up. So, I never start with them, only use them when I have to.
7:31 pm
Zugzug7

true. my problem is I tend to use the greens first and usually find it makes the puzzle much too easy sometimes.
7:31 pm
Andy

Agreed... or it confuses it horribly :)
7:32 pm
Zugzug7

after a long day at work the last thing I want to do is think too hard, so the greens are a way out. Maybe I should do the puzzle in the mornong before work gets too stressful.
7:32 pm
Andy

I do it first thing when I wake up... sometimes that helps... sometimes I make horribly stupid mistakes :)
