Hi,

What does this "NaN:NaN:NaN" time mean? I've seen this a couple of times now, and when I do my "real" time doesn't get registered.

Before I didn't pay much attention as the that didn't register was bad, but this time it lost my under 40 sec time in a 6x6 (which I get quite rarely :-) )

This happens too fast so I haven't been able to get a screenshot, but I'll try to hit print screen next time I see this.

It most likely means that the info about your solved puzzle did not reach the server.
I'm seeing one such error for your account at the server at 6.55 CET today.

It's my sneaky way of beating you in the timed puzzle rankings [flapper]

Maybe I can simulate this error to test it, and add some kind of "retry" function when it happens
(much like in gmail when it loses the network connection, it says 'will retry in 30 seconds" etc.)

I had suspicion that there was some kind of a conspiracy going on [biggrin]

But just to clarify this was probably the 3rd or 4th time I saw that NaN thing, and I think they've all been on different sized puzzles. I don't remember any specific dates though..

For those of you who are not computer programmers: "NaN" stands for "Not a Number"

My thought exactly!
