Did my fastest ever 8x8 today - 3 minutes 52.182 seconds. I know that's pretty slow by reference to the times routinely done by jpoos and the other speedsters, but I'm happy with an improvement of over 7.8 seconds on my previous best time. [biggrin]

I also did my 5th fastest 4x4 and my 26th fastest 5x5. The less said about my 6x6 time the better - the best I could do was my 562th fastest. [blush]

Not a great day......had some work done on the yard the last few days and we had agreed on a cash estimate.....he finished just as I was starting the 8x8 timed and so I had to go down to the bank to get the cash I needed.....and then get back home to finish 8x8......total time 43:24.980 [cursing]......oh well, such is life [smile]

I have been having poor days of late.

But today was good. 4:2?. Often gets into to the top ten, but not today.

You got the point for participating, which is a reason why many do through this exercise. :hugs:

I understand how you both feel. Yesterday, I also did the 8x8 in 4:23 and finished outside the top 10.

Today I thought I had it finished in around the same time, but some of the cells were wrong. All the rows were OK, but two of the columns had duplicates. I couldn't find a quick fix, so had to start again, more or less from scratch. Second time round, there was also an error, but this was resolved by swapping around two pairs of cells. Slowest time so far today and I'll struggle to make top 25.

My frustration of yesterday was on the 5x5. I did it in 38.790 seconds, my 59th best effort in 3496 tries, good for #26 and 1 point.
