Thanks........am doing just that.........had to give up on my 8x8 puzzle but left it open in case I could see where I had made a simple mistake.......and after a little over 16 hours I found it and solved the puzzle........if I had not done so, it would have been my first miss of the 8x8 timed in over 3 years..........16 hours and 51 minutes.......that's gotta be some kind of record :-) ...........

It was your personal record (your previous longest 8x8 was a bit under 8 hours [bored] )

Three people managed longer times: frederick (18 hours and 35 minutes),
silverscreen (3 longer times, the longest one 22 hours and 51 minutes),
and johanna (the 2 longest times, the longest was 32 hours and 36 minutes [scared] )

Probably all fell asleep while puzzling [sleep]

Not necessarily. I know there was at least one occasion when I was working on a timed 8x8 and failed to get it completed before I had to go somewhere. I left it open and went back to it when I returned home.

Patrick, as you seem to have everyone's data, can you tell me what was my slowest 8x8 please?

Thanks Patrick. "Seem to have" is just my convoluted Irish way of saying "have". [biggrin]

Patrick: How can you have a 32hours+ for an 8x8 timed if the time limit is 24 hours [confused] ?

I believe you need to submit it by midnight CET for points but, if it's already up, only the points turn into pumpkins, not the puzzle itself.
