Starling is the name, Magic is the skill.
But how do you do the calculus?
Very impressive! Thank you.

Can't get the initial bugginess to go away, so I just stalled until you could see the whole puzzle. Start at 13 seconds to skip that part. Stop at 26 to ignore me rambling.

Great, thanks a lot, amazing speed [woot]

For the benefit of those who think at normal speed, I've posted a version of this video
at about 1/3 the original speed:

Running through the reasoning.

First thing was place the green cells. Those are free, no reason not to take them.

Next, that lone red cell: 24x has to be 2-3-4 in some order on a 4x4, so I placed the 4.

Then the 2x allows me to determine the two yellow cells, and place those two.

The blue cells fill in easily as well, since all of them only have one option.

The orange cells are just from knowing x-y-x cages: 10+ is either 4-2-4 or 3-4-3. 3-4-3 wasn't an option, so yeah. 7+, if one of the sides of the L is a 3, must be 3-1-3. There's an awkward moment when you slow the video down when I have the cursor in the bottom right of that 10+ cage, and then move it up to the top left. I did that when I realized that the 7+ was 3-1-3, and that allowed me to just go right-down-left-down-right-down until completion.

Sorry for the double post, but here's a 6x6:

I'm going to record my other few to see if I can get one where the buggy stuff doesn't happen, but that seems unlikely.

It seems that because of the video codec you're using,
it takes a while for the image to stabilize.
Does this software give you a choice of codec?

Wonderful, Starling!
But now I see why the 3 S ( Starling, Sneaklyfox and Sheldoline ) are the best in the time puzzles: You three are good pianists consequently you are well trained with the fingers!
The next step is to ask to you three to put at Youtube one video with a musical piece of Mozart.

Fantastic, starling!

Thank you for your effort prepearing the videos.
It's not only a question of having clear the combinations, "reading the solution", and going to the proper location of the numbers, but also the ability to move so fast, you really "fly" over the keyboard [biggrin] (perhaps in the next video it would be interesting to see your fingers too).

This produces terrible frustration to the slow puzzlers, I am affraid to have that speed I should sell my soul to the devil [scared] [scared] (like a new "Calcu-Faustus), let's say, something between 1,000 and 1,500 years, I must initiate negotiations soon, I am thinking in 100 puzzles of each size, for instance, below 5, 12 and 25 seconds, respectively, and considering I know the devil is very interested of buying my soul, perhaps I could get 200 each.
