At the current rate, to overcome mparisi in the rankings, and become the uber grand #1 ranking calkudoku solver in the world, it will take three and a half years.

On a side note, you are number ONE IN THE WORLD in today's 5x5 timed rankings :-)

This is at 9.12 GMT, not sure what'll happen the rest of the day though [tongue]

You might want to recalculate that. I think you are averaging 30 points a week more than him, because of timed puzzles.

I know... forever. I always calculate it. It'll take me like a year and a few months at least...

Speaking of ranking, how does Jackie and sagearrow seem to always get so many more regular points than anyone else? (508 instead of 468?) Also, it's such a coincidence that they seem always the same in everything.

This happens often, I'll check again. It might still be a problem with the script computing the weekly totals (sigh).

A first version, with 2 (3?) 4x4, 6x6, and 8x8 puzzles each day, print only, was online in February 2009.

I'll fix this soon.
I find the people who cheat and lie about it the worst kind.
Most people, when I write to them asking if they're using a solver (or any other tricks) admit to it,
and say they enjoyed the programming challenge.

Some however keep spinning stories :-(

Numdays = (MyTotPts - MpTotPts)/(MyDlyAv_30 - MpDlyAv_30)

Numdays = (53734 - 38211)/(81-70) = 1411 days

It's about as accurate as I can come up w/o doing major research into trends over teh year
