It'll also be interesting to check if the computed difficulty level correlates withthis "solved percentage", and at first glance it does (!)From this I can tell you that today's 12x12 is also "up there" Maybe there's a case to be made for a milder 12x12 on Thursday, and a harder one on Sunday?(or the other way around?)
