Morning/Evening everyone!
1:50 am
sprite

Morning all
1:55 am
moedog

howdy howdy
1:58 am
MaW

morning all
1:58 am
sprite

HI MaW, how was your birthday?
Hi moedog!
1:58 am
moedog

hi sprite
2:00 am
MaW

hi sprite, it was good thanks! my sister baked me an enormous and very sticky chocolate cake
2:01 am
sprite

Owwww, that's good! Chocolate cakes should be sticky. :)
2:02 am
GingerUK

morning Sprite and MaW
2:02 am
MaW

Absolutely. Unfortunately with nearly a centimetre of chocolate on the top, it was very hard to cut
2:02 am
GingerUK

and moedog of course!
2:02 am
moedog

aw, man... i hate when a square becomes un-clickable :-/
2:02 am
MaW

hi moedog
2:02 am
moedog

hi maw
2:03 am
sprite

How can a square become un-clickable??
MaW, sounds like the cake was worth the effort! (Forgive me for drooling a little bit.)
2:04 am
MaW

oh yes, shared with some flatmates and still got half left.
2:04 am
moedog

i'm using firefox, might have something to do with it
2:04 am
MaW

unlikely, it's supposed to work best with firefox
2:04 am
moedog

hmm
2:04 am
moedog

well, i manage to do it, somehow
2:04 am
MaW

and works fine here using another browser with the same rendering engine
2:05 am
Adr41n

Hi, I've seen no probs with firefox ( and the magic Java script that was on here works a treat! )
2:05 am
sprite

I am using firefox too, is supposed to work best with ff. What do you mean by unclickable?
2:05 am
moedog

i'll shift-click to mark a possible, and do *something* at the same time.
2:05 am
moedog

i don't know what *something* is
2:06 am
moedog

but then the cursor never changes to a hand on the square after that
2:06 am
sprite

And if you shift-click the same number again, it won't disappear? What if you fill in a definite number?
2:06 am
moedog

the possible is never assigned to the square
2:07 am
moedog

i can't click in the square to fill in a definite
2:08 am
sprite

If I want to mark a possible, I click the square, then use shft-click to mark the desired number.
2:08 am
moedog

ah
2:08 am
moedog

i'm holding down shift as i click
2:08 am
sprite

Thought so. First click, then use sft-click in the mini grid you get.
2:09 am
moedog

will do
2:10 am
moedog

ah well, time for bed anyway
2:10 am
moedog

The Wac

it's kinda weird that you can't change your name anymore
1:44 pm
helenkeller

i didn't know that you weren't able to do that
1:44 pm
The Wac

i don't think you can. . . but maybe i'm just not brilliant like someone else
1:44 pm
The Wac

i guess it makes sense though. . .so people always know who you are
1:44 pm
helenkeller

yep - this is the one i always use
1:45 pm
The Wac

ha ha how confusing would it be if people started changing their name to someone elses. . .
1:45 pm
helenkeller

if it's already taken, i just start lopping letters off the end - lol - let folks figure it out for themselves :)
1:45 pm
The Wac

you could have some fun with that
1:45 pm
helenkeller

1:50 pm
The Wac

oh darn!
1:50 pm
helenkeller

hmmmm - maybe i haven't reached that point yet
1:51 pm
chrissie2006

It's the top three squares mostly that are giving me a hard time...
1:51 pm
chrissie2006

1:52 pm

miller da killer

well back to sudoku after about 5 days without
5:42 pm
miller da killer

good thing i'm pro, that way i can go back to the archives
5:43 pm
hurshy

keep missing scribble!!!!
5:43 pm
stuartjlittle

This is my first, my brain is fried, but i can't stop, HELP!
5:45 pm
miller da killer

i really don't know how i can help you stuartjlittle, because i'm not a very good teacher and i'd probably end up confusing you even more!
5:45 pm
miller da killer

but maybe if you tell us what
5:45 pm
miller da killer

you need help with, one of us might be able to help
5:47 pm
stuartjlittle

What's a good elimination process i may not have used I'm just generallt stuck now.
5:47 pm
miller da killer

well, go through boxes, rows and columns and see if there are any numbers that only fit in one place, that's a good place to start
5:47 pm
scribble's mom

hurshy, scribble is on her way home she was helping me she should be on in a little
5:48 pm
british16chica

man, yesterday and today's puzzles i've completely screwed up
5:48 pm
british16chica

maybe i shouldn't play when exhausted
5:49 pm
miller da killer

you know british chica, i can't think sudoku when i'm running on fumes either.
5:49 pm
stuartjlittle

Done that, trying to possibles where there are only two options in one block in one direction to eliminate others, can't find any of those ones either
5:49 pm
stuartjlittle

or rather found as many as I seem able to
5:50 pm
british16chica

i think i'm doing alright and then it flashes red... and these are easy!
5:50 pm
stuartjlittle

i know, easy my a***
5:50 pm
tchansen

Okay, after three restarts, I got it. Gotta slow down and get it right...
5:50 pm
miller da killer

ok, now see if there are some numbers in a big box that can only go in only one row or column\
5:51 pm
miller da killer

even if it isn't what is called a naked pair (only two of the same numbers) it should help you eliminate something
5:51 pm
stuartjlittle

cool
5:51 pm
miller da killer

did you find something?
5:51 pm
stuartjlittle

not yet
5:52 pm
miller da killer

i have a really hard time explaining these things.
5:52 pm
stuartjlittle

It was fine, very clear explination
5:52 pm
miller da killer

if you can find someone who actually knows the terms for these processes, it might not be so confusing.
5:53 pm
miller da killer

i'm glad you don't find them confusing as i do.
5:53 pm
miller da killer

if it was me getting the advice, i would have thrown in the towel and completely given up by now!
5:55 pm
miller da killer

hey i just found a perfect example for what i was just explaining
5:56 pm
miller da killer

ok, the bottom left big box, do you see how the fives can only go in the far right vertical column (or row?)? then you know that the two fives in the top left big box in that vertical can't be fives. does that make sense?
5:57 pm
miller da killer

so then you can find that top five
6:04 pm
miller da killer

did i clear things up, or just make them even more confusing?
6:04 pm
stuartjlittle

STILL TRYING
6:04 pm
stuartjlittle

sorry accidental shout
6:05 pm
miller da killer

yeah, that was a bit of a temper outburst lol
6:09 pm
stuartjlittle

Dear lord preserve us... i'm gonna chuck my computer out the window, five more minutes and I'm giving in!
6:10 pm
miller da killer

i'm sorry, there are websites you can visit i'll see if i can find one for you.
6:10 pm
miller da killer

does anyone out there know of one off the top of their head?
6:11 pm
stuartjlittle

Don't worry, it's gone midnight here, I'll be off to bed soon anyway.
6:11 pm
miller da killer

oh ok. but for further reference...
6:29 pm
miller da killer

ok, sudoku.com might be able to help you.
6:31 pm
miller da killer

wikipedia.org also has a cool thing on sudoku that might help. maybe i'll read it myself...
6:31 pm
miller da killer

but i have to dash, enough sudoku archives for one day. bye!

tylor

vwahhhh
7:12 pm
dinoshadow

I don't know how many goals are in a hat trick, but I don't want to give anything away

7:12 pm
BariSaxPat

how many eggs come in a carton?

7:13 pm
dinoshadow

But, Dr_God, hurshy said 37 really DID go in that spot!
7:13 pm
hurshy

but it's supposed to be simple, silly, i'm not trying to trick anybody
7:13 pm
hurshy

so you should go with the most obvious :)

Sorry, I'm in a weird mood because I smell turkey cooking and I'm starving and it's not ready yet
7:14 pm

wait back up what is rot13 the hint??
7:14 pm
tylor

so it took me a while
7:14 pm
tylor

7:14 pm
dinoshadow

rot13 is shifting letters 13 up - so A becomes M, etc
7:14 pm
hurshy

tylor!
7:14 pm
dinoshadow

tylor, don't post the answers ;)
7:14 pm
stormgren

rot13 is what people usually use for spoilers. You rotate/move every letter 13 letters over.
7:14 pm
tylor

oh well
7:14 pm
hurshy

the whole point of the clue was so people who didn't want to know....
7:14 pm
stormgren

if you do it again you get the original answer.
7:15 pm
tylor

sorry
7:15 pm
dinoshadow

then again, six becomes pretty obvious
7:15 pm
tylor

i got overexcited
7:15 pm

I agree
7:16 pm
tylor

7:16 pm
tylor

i am trying
7:17 pm
stormgren

At one point I was so geeky I could read it without decoding it first. :P
7:17 pm
hurshy

i get it
7:18 pm
hurshy

yes i would quickly get to that point, stormgren
7:18 pm
hurshy

when i was a toddler, i had blocks that worked on that system and i knew what was on the other side of every block
7:18 pm
hurshy

they had the same ones in the church nursery and the older kids would be freaked out when i wanted a P and reached for a C!
7:18 pm
hurshy

they thought i was psychic
7:19 pm
tylor

7:20 pm

i've had to restart twice... this ain't yer run-of-the-mill easy
9:09 pm
hurshy

it was easy but i did feel that it would have been hard without marking.
9:09 pm
bookwyrmish

OK I'm making some headway, but had to fill in the greens. Nice to hear I'm not the only one who didn't find it that easy!
9:09 pm
moedog

that 'splains it - i'm not marking :)
9:09 pm
bookwyrmish

Hi, Hurshy!

Have you heard from scribble, lately, hurshy. I haven't been around that much lately.
9:11 pm
Atalante

hey hursh, guess who is trying to chat to me on IM
9:13 pm
hurshy

hmmm
9:14 pm
hurshy

9:14 pm
hurshy

i have seen scribble be on but i keep missing her, book
9:14 pm
hurshy

ata - currently trying??? and if so what are you doing about it? :)
9:15 pm
Atalante

trying to ignore it :P
9:15 pm
hurshy

why exactly is he trying anyway?
9:16 pm
hurshy

you have hardly spoken to him at all in chat right?
9:16 pm
hurshy

which IM, MSN? does it have a block feature like AIM does?
9:20 pm
Atalante

no idea about why. because he thinks I'd like to chat with him? and yes, it has a block. I just thought I'd see what he wante dto talk about!!
9:21 pm
hurshy

and what did he want to talk about?
9:22 pm
bookwyrmish

Sounds like you folks are being unhappily reminded about how there are some nasties out there. I hope you are being safe, Atalante, and not worrying too much about what someone wants to talk about. I am talking without any real knowledge here, just overhearing your WWW conversation with hurshy, so forgive If I am off track!
9:23 pm
bookwyrmish

Hurshy, if you hear from scribble, please tell her I was asking about her and look forward to catching her online one of these days!
9:24 pm
Atalante

dont worry, bookwyrmish, its nothing traumatic :) and I don't know what he wants to talk about. he's *hovering*. and didn't know who hayden was *gasp*
9:25 pm
moedog

besides, the ones you *really* have to worry about are easy to spot - they have handles based on their pets' names....
9:25 pm
moedog

um... i've gotta go
9:25 pm
Atalante

lol lol
9:25 pm
bookwyrmish

moedog, gasp! what's your handle based on?
9:26 pm
hurshy

lol ata and moedog
9:26 pm
hurshy

well if he's hovering, that's dull, so just block him
9:26 pm
hurshy

i mean the least he could do is be entertaining
9:26 pm
Atalante

have done :P
9:26 pm
hurshy

:)
9:26 pm
Atalante

exactly! thats what I was hoping for!
9:27 pm
moedog

if he were to start hoovering, now.. that'd be a different story
9:27 pm
hurshy

smeltz did that a couple of times, until i asked why he was vacuuming
9:28 pm
bookwyrmish

Random people hoovering your place...mmmm. May be heaven
9:28 pm
hurshy

it is easy enough with marking, but seemed like it would be hard without.
9:32 pm

Hokie, I found I had to fill in the greens and think a bunch more than usual for a green.
9:32 pm
bookwyrmish

Um, I mean, for an easy

some of my squares have like 7 greens in them. not very helpful.
9:34 pm
hurshy

hokie - you should never have more than 5 per square
9:35 pm
bookwyrmish

Hokie, double check those greens! Do you want a super coded hint from Hurshy? She's good at them!
9:35 pm
hokie carla

well, I did see some that could be erased, but still have some
9:35 pm
hokie carla

(oops) over-populated squares.

hokie, if you want, you can send me a screencap of what you've got and maybe i can give you some pointers.

9:48 pm
