hey everyone, hows the puzzle going so far(just got here)?
12:18 am
Dr_God

I just got a report from someone that said their page is still refreshing at midnight. Is this still happening to anyone else?
12:18 am
raggedyandy3478

isnt that what its supposed to do?
12:19 am
Dr_God

The page used to refresh at midnight before I made the archives playable. But I disabled that feature just in case someone was working on an archived puzzle at midnight.
12:19 am
Dr_God

I don't want the page to refresh while someone's in the middle of working on a puzzle.
12:20 am
raggedyandy3478

i believe mine still does, but i didnt come on until 4 min ago so I dont know about tonight
12:21 am
ls

i think mine does too, that's why i always hit checkpoint just before midnight if i'm in the middle of a puzzle
12:22 am
Dr_God

Aha! I just figured it out. It is still refreshing at midnight. Thanks.

Hardly begun and already stuck - I am starting to feel incredibly stupid, lol.
1:57 am

morning all
1:58 am
sprite

Hi Bubbles!
1:59 am
GingerUK

yeah, it's not looking very easy today or maybe the heat is getting to my head!
1:59 am
mikehell

I just hope that the reason has been lack of concentration, but I'm afraid that that's not the reason...
1:59 am
mikehell

well, its +42 C outside, maybe that has something to do with it
1:59 am
GingerUK

I have placed 2 solitary numbers as certainties!
2:00 am
sprite

It is, mike, it is. We cannot be that thick ;)
I just found some light in the bottom middle box!
2:00 am
sprite

wtg Ginger!
2:00 am
GingerUK

if i work at theis rate sprite I'll still be doing this at bedtime!!!
2:01 am
GingerUK

I think i just found the same light Sprite :-)
2:01 am
sprite

Lol, me too, and it is 9.02 am here
2:02 am
GingerUK

8.02 here
2:02 am
sprite

Even worse, LOL!
2:02 am
GingerUK

did that light lead you to a number in the centre box sprite?
2:03 am
mikehell

Two numbers in the middle box
2:03 am
sprite

I only have one number in the center box so far, the first number I entered.
2:03 am
GingerUK

I have 2 there too... yes and almost complete bottom middle
2:04 am
GingerUK

the light you found will lead you to a 2nd
2:04 am
mikehell

Bottom middle missing two, but that doesn't help much
2:05 am
GingerUK

me too
2:05 am
GingerUK

missing row 6 bottom and row 5 top
2:05 am
Lamancha

Morning all
2:05 am
GingerUK

make that column not row
2:05 am
sprite

Hand me the fish... found that 2nd number in the middle box. It is an obvious one. *beats herself on the head*
2:06 am
Bubbles

hi sprite
2:06 am
GingerUK

lol sprite :-)
2:07 am
mikehell

Stupid, just got third in the middle and that seems to unlock atleast little bit :)
2:07 am
GingerUK

hmmm not got that yet
2:08 am
GingerUK

got one in bottom left though
2:08 am
sprite

Let's get this straight. Us not having that 3rd one are normal people. You having it are a genius. (tries not to think of 'stupid')
2:11 am
GingerUK

ooo there is an obvious in column 9
2:11 am
sprite

the bottom box one?
2:12 am
GingerUK

yes
2:12 am
GingerUK

lol guess i was slow on that one!
2:13 am
sprite

I was hoping there was another one ;) I am still working on that 3rd one in the center box, not getting it.
2:13 am
GingerUK

me neither
2:17 am
mikehell

Now I got Two bottom boxes/two bottom rows, but again I'm stuck
2:17 am
GingerUK

defo genius!
2:18 am
sprite

I second that!
2:21 am
mikehell

And done :)
2:22 am
GingerUK

wd Mikehell
2:22 am
sprite

Lol! Mike, you ARE a genius. Congrats and well done!
2:23 am
mikehell

Thnx. But that third in the middle is basically staring at you. Once you get that, it's basically just clicking those green ones of the chart :)
2:23 am
GingerUK

I'm stuck I think!
2:24 am
sprite

I cannot figure out how you can be sure of a 3rd one there. So I am back to feeling stupid (and rightly so) ;)
2:24 am
GingerUK

I THINK I have the 3rd one in middle....
2:25 am
GingerUK

is it in 1st column Mike?
2:25 am
sprite

Center of the center?
2:25 am
mikehell

center column
2:26 am
GingerUK

no, c4, r5
2:26 am
GingerUK

oh, I think I have a different one then
2:27 am
mikehell

I got c5r6, i think
2:27 am
sprite

I just did some reasoning ahead and now I think I know the two missing numbers in the bottom middle box.
2:28 am
GingerUK

I know what the numbers are but not which is which LOL
2:29 am
sprite

And if I am right, it leads to a complete center column. So I am probably wrong, lol.
2:29 am
GingerUK

my centre number was wrong LOL
2:29 am
Lamancha

Done, no green
2:30 am
GingerUK

wtg Lamancha
2:30 am
sprite

Wow Lamancha
2:31 am
GingerUK

took my green army out and found a number immediately!
2:31 am
GingerUK

they really can confuse things
2:32 am
Lamancha

Agree Ginger - green only if bamboozled
2:32 am
sprite

I am too stupid for the green ones, I always get confused by them.
2:33 am
GingerUK

I do too
2:33 am
GingerUK

but I neaver learn1
2:33 am
Lamancha

9:28 am
Perry

Have a question about the x-wing technique... when you find one, can it only be used to eliminate numbers between the candidates or can it be outside in the same row/column?
9:29 am
yul

done
9:29 am
Perry

Found a horizontal one that would eliminate a number outside the x within one of the x rows...
9:34 am
narrativium

what's "the x-wing technique"?
9:34 am
M3

perry, do you mean corner to corner only? i dont understand!!
9:36 am
Krys10

hey sprite!
9:36 am
sprite

Hey Krys :)
9:36 am
Perry

M3, I found an x-wing on 2 columns (so you'd be eliminating extras in the rows) that has a candidate not between the "corners" - from what I'm reading on technique sites this sounds ok
9:37 am
Perry

narrativium, check out http://www.scanraid.com/AdvanStrategies.htm
9:37 am
Krys10

x-wings, yeesh, so much for my nice easy day off

9:38 am
acheekymonkey

yesterday's was tough
9:38 am
Perry

Yep it was, and today's seems a bit tough too
9:38 am
Krys10

3's and 5's fall into place nicely on this one, at first glance
9:39 am
acheekymonkey

yep
9:39 am
acheekymonkey

i think the 9s did yesterday too
9:39 am
M3

lol looks way to tech for me !!!!
9:40 am
sprite

5's and 9's on yesterday's are simple. And after that a few more. And then... concrete wall.
9:40 am
Perry

9:40 am
Krys10

Perry

Finally, yes! Restarted yesterday's puzzle and solved it.
12:01 pm
Perry

Any other pro users have a problem with the chat log from previous days getting cut off? If I look at yesterday's log, it cuts off at 7:20pm even though the white space continues and looks like the right size. But it has no text.
12:02 pm
Perry

So I can view from midnight to 7:19pm, then a 7:20pm msg is cut horizontally so I just see the upper part of the characters
12:08 pm
stubie

Perry, do you know any CSS/HTML?
12:08 pm
