kozibrada's MultiOp was actually fairly easy, in my opinion. I was able to motor through it in less than 20 minutes [blink] Sorry, kozibrada - I don't want to insult your 2 hours of work. It was quite a fun puzzle, actually [thumbsup]

Also, was the special occasion in kus_theo's 12x12 his 18th birthday? If so, then congratulations!

You can find it (and others) in eclipsegirl's post right above mine. They are still available for points [cool]

It is still impossible to send 2 book puzzles the same day (Colossal Killer and January Series, for instance).

BTW, a suggestion for the new year, a "Save for later" feature would be very useful when submitting book solutions. I understand that it's not the same thing to work on the solution of a determined puzzle "on-line" than submitting a solution once you have completed it in the book, but sometimes, with larger puzzlers of course (15x15, 17x17), where you have to enter up to 289 numbers (and up to 625 digits), it occurs that meanwhile you must pay attention to other business (apart of possible outages or PC problems).


When doing the larger puzzles in the 10 million set, I saved the results in a spreadsheet and then copied and pasted the spreadsheet into the solution box. This worked fine for me and was much easier than entering everything manually into the box.

That's a good idea (and in fact with a better presentation in a spreadsheet it's easy to verify digits), for the moment particularly myself I have finished all possible book puzzles, but next time I'll use it.

A while ago, Patrick removed one of my posts in this thread.

Patrick moved it to the forum titled: Specific Puzzles / Your Own Puzzles.

It is now a stickie, and found in that forum.
It is a list of all user submitted puzzles.

I note that 51 Advanced Puzzles Extra is provided when you make your 3rd subscription. What happens when you make your 2nd subscription?

Paul,
Nothing happens with your 2nd annual subscription.

I am hoping that we can convince Patrick to make the book he created for the Malaysian school available for 5 yr subscribers.
