Some of us are OCD and have to finish every puzzle, every day.
Others of us have obssive issues with points, and mneed as as many as we can get.

Both of those fit me.
I can't answer for others.

What I do while solving a timed puzzle:

  • phone call: don't pick up
  • unexpected guest: don't open the door

I'm similar to eclipsegirl. I get quite annoyed with myself if I don't finish all the puzzles within the allotted time limit.

I also tend to ignore interruptions if I'm doing a timed puzzle, but last night the dog came into the room whining to be let out and I couldn't really ignore her. I was then out for a couple of hours and didn't log on straight away when I hit home, so I missed the opportunity that Patrick so kindly provided to have another go at the 8x8.

What I need is a sound proof room with a DO NOT DISTURB sign on the door because my wife seems to have "radar" and always comes into the room to talk about something or turns on the TV (aaagggghhhhh [cursing] )

I used to tell my girlfriend to be as quiet as possible when I did the timed puzzles in the morning at home. Even told her not to put anything crunchy on her sandwiches, so that the sound wouldn't annoy me (such as bell pepper slices, iceberg lettuce etc etc) [huh] But quite soon I began to realize that that was pretty much insane [biggrin]

I could've just used headphones or something, but that wasn't a part of my morning ritual then...

So the calcudoku puzzle obsession has almost made me completely crazy [thumbsup]
