Difficulty score 11. Seemed slightly harder than that, but not much.
12:21 am
drwho

You should be able to solve it by just cross-hatching the blocks.
12:23 am
augurus

I should just stop reading the chat box if you continue to tell people (who understand the jargon) how to solve sudokus.
12:28 am
augurus

Or maybe I could just request you to stop spoiling these puzzles.
12:30 am
drwho

You're kidding, aren't you?
12:32 am

Done

Disclaimer: although it is theoretically possible to solve this puzzle by cross-hatching the blocks with no other technique, it is not necessarily the most efficient method of solving this puzzle. It is certainly not how I solved it.

Considering I rarely actually solve anything using only the methods you mention in chat, I'd hardly call what you do spoiling, Doc. I appreciate the difficulty warning, so I know what I'm getting into :)

kangabrat

and as i don't understand a thing anyone is saying, nothing gets spoiled for me!
12:40 am
drwho

I rarely only use the methods I mention either. Its just what the computer says it used to solve the puzzle.
12:40 am
bangping

If you start talking about where all the 7's go, we'll have to have words, though! ;)
12:40 am
drwho

Ok, there is one 7 in each row.
12:41 am
kangabrat

no that i understood!
12:41 am
bangping

Awww, man! No point solving the puzzle now! Thanks a lot!
12:41 am
Denise

and in each column
12:41 am
bangping

Next you're gonna tell me there's one in ever COLUMN, too!
12:41 am
kangabrat

it all makes sense now!
12:41 am
drwho

Ha, but I bet you didn't know that there is only one 7 in each block!
12:42 am
bangping

You mean they're not supposed to turn pretty red colors when I put 3 of 'em in each box?
12:42 am
Denise

how frustrated is augurus now
12:42 am
kangabrat

so that was where i was going wrong!
12:42 am
drwho

If you like red, go ahead.
12:45 am
drwho

Seriously, the Difficulty rating at the top of the puzzle (Easy, Medium, Hard and Expert) gives away the techniques needed to solve the puzzles anyway, so I really don't need to anything about it.
12:45 am
jawilke

go
12:45 am
drwho

...so I really don't need to SAY anything about it.
12:46 am
drwho

jawilke, is your avatar a man eating guppy?
12:47 am
bangping

Guppy isn't bad in a nice hollandaise sauce...
12:47 am
jawilke

done no greens
12:47 am
jawilke

no, it's a guppy monster eating a little girl
12:47 am
drwho

Or is it a guppy eating a man.
12:47 am
jawilke

the caveman got a little commercial
12:48 am
drwho

Ok.
12:48 am
drwho

Didn't the cavemen get a cable show?
12:48 am
jawilke

yeah
12:48 am
jawilke

pilot's on torrent
12:49 am
jawilke

sucks
12:49 am
drwho

The commercials were pretty good.
12:49 am
jawilke

the geico commercials?
12:50 am
jawilke

most of them
12:50 am
drwho

The only problem is I don't remember which insurance company they were advertising.
12:50 am
drwho

Yeah, Geico, I think. The gecko was a much better commercial in terms of name recognition.
12:50 am
jawilke

"I got a piece of the gecko's tail... and he signed it for me"
12:51 am
jawilke

I liked that line.
12:51 am
jawilke

12:52 am
