Hello oldmathtchr,

I'm observing the same thing.

This suggests a koan: what is the value of solving a nonexistent puzzle? Amazingly, the web site says 2 people have done that already and the answer to the koan is "8 points"!

a) I can't see it either;
b) nice koan.

Same here. No-op not loading, seems to be non-existent. All others okay.

Yes, not existent, it says "solved 2 times so far" but not showing "who" is the last solver.
It looks like if the pool of 6x6 no-ops is exhausted. Sunday is not a good day for correcting problems ... , perhaps the solution is to provide 2 no-ops next Sunday? :-) :-)

It was in fact missing.

It's strange though, after generating and loading puzzles for the next month (which I do in the last week of the preceding month)
I run a checking script that checks if all puzzles are present. All was ok then.

I ran it again just now, and 4 no-op puzzles were missing (?!) [omg]
(today's, and the ones for the following three Sundays)

Today's puzzle should be there now.

edit: the "solved 2 times so far" comes from the fact that a "puzzle id" number is set to zero if there is no puzzle.
There are appear to be 2 records in the database for puzzles solved with id zero (one in 2010, one in 2012, most likely
set at the time because of some network/database error). I cleared those records now..

So it is! I feel enlightened :-)
